It's here. One of the most anticipated dates for any Houston foodie has arrived. The website for the 2014 edition of Houston Restaurant Weeks went live Tuesday morning with menus from more than 150 participating restaurants across the Houston metropolitan area. 

By now, most people are familiar with the way Houston Restaurant Weeks works. From Aug. 1 through Sept. 1, diners who eat out at a participating restaurant and pick from the special menu will have a portion of that meal's cost donated to the Houston Food Bank. The options are two or three-course lunch ($20, $3 donation), three-course brunch ($25, $4 donation) and three or four-course dinner ($35/$45, $5/$7 donation).

 From Sugar Land to Kingwood and Vintage Park to Clear Lake, restaurants across the city are participating. With such a wide variety of cuisines, almost anyone can find an appealing menu.  

Last year's event raised over $1.2 million, making HRW the largest single fundraising event for the nation's largest food bank.

"I'm so excited. It feels like giving birth," organizer Cleverley Stone tells CultureMap. "I'm very excited about the way the new site looks. It's very easy to maneuver and search."

From Sugar Land to Kingwood and Vintage Park to Clear Lake, restaurants across the city are participating. With such a wide variety of cuisines, almost anyone can find an appealing menu. 

Many restaurants that have opened in the past year are participating in HRW. They include Vallone's, Punk's Simple Southern Food, Coppa Osteria, Bradley's Fine Diner, the Heights General Store, 60 Degrees Mastercrafted, Luigi's Cucina Italiana and Osteria Mazzantini

Meanwhile, some established restaurants that have sat out for a year or more are back. They include Tony'sArtista and Ara at the Royal Sonesta (remodeled and renamed). Stay tuned for a CultureMap-exclusive video preview of the Tony's menu with restaurateur Tony Vallone. 

Several established restaurants are participating for the first time this year, including Pico's, Radical Eats, westside favorite Lynn's Steakhouse, Peruvian restaurant Piqueo and Vintage Park staple Peli Peli

Stone adds that all restaurants agree to a minimum donation by participating. For dinner-only restaurants it's $1,000, $1,500 if two meals are offered and $2,000 if all three menu options are included. 

Of course, CultureMap will be breaking down the options and offering suggestions all month of restaurants to try. Where will you be dining during Houston Restaurant Weeks? Share your favorites in the comments section below.
