The Full Menu: Navigating Houston Restaurant Weeks and Where to Get Good Italian Food in H-Town

August is one of the busiest months in Houston for restaurants, that’s largely thanks to Houston Restaurant Weeks or HRW. Actually it’s more like Houston Restaurant month because the event runs until the end of August. The idea is to have high-end eateries provide special menus with some of the proceeds going directly to the Houston Food Bank.

In our monthly segment, The Full Menu, we turn to some Houston foodies and ask for their tips and tricks to navigate HRW and where is the best place for Italian food and pizza in H-town.
