This monthlong event will run through Sept. 4 with participating restaurants offering two-, three- and four-course prix fixe meal options for brunch, lunch and dinner.

Depending on which meal restaurantgoers select, a certain amount of money will be donated to the Houston Food Bank to help raise funds to provide meals for those in need. Brunch or lunch courses will be $25, and dinners will either be $39 or $55.Read below for participating restaurants in the Pearland-Friendswood area, and visit www.houstonrestaurantweeks.com to view the full list.
