The inaugural Houston Black Restaurant Week (#HOUBRW) kicks off April 3-10, 2016, offering Houston’s local tastemakers, professionals, and area foodies a full week dedicated to highlighting Black restaurants and chefs in the city. Houston Black Restaurant Week will feature signature prix-fixe dining menus and special meals for brunch, lunch and dinner, at various dining establishments, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting local non-profit organization Change Happens!.

Houston Black Restaurant Week seeks to increase the awareness, support and patronization of black restaurants and chefs in the city. Houston is now recognized as one of the leading culinary destinations in the United States; with Blacks making significant contributions to Houston’s local food scene. Houston boasts a variety of well-accomplished Black restaurant owners, executive chefs, and catering companies, who have created a legacy of providing food.

During Houston Black Restaurant Week, Houstonians will be treated to a series of events promoting the local culinary scene such as a catering showcase, a pop-up dinner with Chef Ja’Nel Witt (Season 11 Winner of FOX’s Hell’s’ Kitchen), a networking dinner, and a bartending competition.
