Houston Restaurant Weeks sampling: Prep for a hot month of great dining deals

Houston Restaurant Weeks sampling: Prep for a hot month of great dining deals

Houston's foodie scene is abuzz with talk of Houston Restaurant Weeks, which kicks off on Aug. 1 with a ton of old favorites participating alongside a dozen or so can't-miss new restaurants — with more new participants being added by the day to the lengthy lineup

The 10-year-running event (which continues its recent tradition of running the entire month this year) raises hefty funds (a record-breaking $800,000 in 2011) for the Houston Food Bank while granting affordable access to some of the city's finest dining. Participating restaurants offer a three- or four-course dinner for $35 (with $5 donated to the HFB) and a two- or three-course lunch for $20 (with a $3 donation).

CultureMap's Sarah Rufca joined KHOU's Katherine Whaley at Canopy to sample some of the dishes that will be offered on the Montrose restaurant's prix fixe lunch and dinner menus. 

Watch the KHOU video below to see what you can taste there during Houston's ultimate win-win food month:
