Many Houstonians are familiar with Farrago World Cuisine for the fabulous weekend brunches.
With the arrival of new general manager, Patrick Dorrian, formerly of Valentino and *17, and chef Chad Weise, a new fine dining element has been added to the popular midtown Houston restaurant. Farrago World Cuisine is participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks to introduce their new menu to the city. (But don’t fret, their fan-favorite dishes and weekend brunches are still available.) Chef Weise shows food radio talk show host Cleverley Stone how to make an entrée from his Houston Restaurant Weeks menu: New Orleans BBQ Crawfish with Rosemary Biscuit.
Houston Restaurant Weeks takes place from Aug. 1 through Aug. 31, 2012.
Christie’s will donate $3 from each Houston Restaurant Weeks lunch and $5 from each Houston Restaurant Weeks dinner sold to the Houston Food Bank.
Diners can make a $10 donation to the food bank by texting HRW to 20222. (Message & data rates may apply and all purchases must be authorized by the account holder. See details at: www.HoustonRestaurantWeeks.com.)
