Houston Restaurant Weeks Around Spring Branch

Houston Restaurant Weeks is here! Even though the “week” has been expanded to over a month, it’s still one of the best times to be a Houstonian. Why? Because it benefits the Houston Food Bank.

You’re literally eating for charity, and it doesn’t get much better than that.

With a restaurant scene that rivals the best food towns around the nation, Houston knows how to eat. No matter what part of town you’re in, you can always find something delicious…and maybe nutritious (no guarantees there). Boasting cultural and ethnic diversity, authenticity is something Houston’s become known for, and our restaurants are no exception to this.

For those of us in Spring Branch, we want to get in on the Houston Restaurant Week action, so here are a few participating restaurants in the area for you to try out.

Goode Company Kitchen & Cantina

9005 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77024
kitchenandcantina.com
Houston Restaurant Week Price: $35 per person

Goode Company has made a name for itself around Houston, serving up southern classics from barbecue to seafood. It’s Kitchen and Cantina off of the Katy Freeway offers a different kind of Texan fare – its own spin on Tex-Mex classics and favorites.

For your first course here, don’t miss out on the Campechana Extra, which features avocado and Anaheim chiles.

International Smoke

800 Sorella Ct #940

Houston Restaurant Week Price: $45 per person

From Chef Michael Mina and restauranteur Ayesha Curry (Oakland Warrior’s player, Stephen Curry’s wife), the Houston chapter of their restaurant is a perfect complement to its sister in San Francisco.

With hearty soul-food inspired dishes, your experience at International Smoke starts with curried cornbread for the table. For entrees, grab half a rack of St. Louis-style smoked ribs. Want to end on a high note? Try Ayesha’s Key Lime Parfait, garnished with everyone’s favorite childhood cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Fratelli’s Ristorante

1330 Wirt Rd
fratellisristorantehouston.com
Houston Restaurant Week Price: $45 per person

Remember how devastated we all were when Mark’s American Cuisine closed down? Well, no worries – Chef Mark Cox is here at Fratelli’s Ristorante on Wirt Road.

Featuring live piano music on Fridays and Saturdays, Fratelli’s is an elegant Italian restaurant with hardwood floors, chandeliers, and murals along the walls that will transport you to a Florentine piazza.

For Houston Restaurant Week, check out the truffle capellini (or angel hair pasta) to start, followed by the redfish risotto. Desserts are as traditionally Italian as you can get, with tiramisu and cannoli options. We can’t choose between the two, so good luck to you.

Carmelo’s Cucina Italiana

14795 Memorial Dr
carmelosrestaurant.com
Houston Restaurant Week Price: $35 per person

Carmelo’s has been around for a while, and for good reason. Putting emphasis on freshness, authenticity, and approachability, their menu features classic Italian items with a twist.

Offering one of the most extensive menus for Houston Restaurant Week, you’ve got a ton of options for your three-course meal. Our suggestion? Mix and match with your buddies at the table – try a bit of everything.

For your first course, give their famous veal meatballs a taste, or their whipped ricotta for a vegetarian option. For the second course, the linguine Aglio e Olio is a must-try – simple, but perfect, and surprisingly filling.
