Coltivare a Houston Restaurant Weeks participant

Coltivare on White Oak Drive in the Houston Heights has been open for a few years but will participate in Houston Restaurant Weeks for the first time in 2017.

Owner/chef Ryan Pera prepares his recipe for spaghetti with black pepper, Parmesan cheese and olive oil during an interview with FOX 26 News segment contributor and Houston Restaurant Weeks founder Cleverley Stone. The pasta dish is one of several available on the Coltivare Houston Restaurant Weeks menu.

279 restaurants from as far north as The Woodlands to as far south as Galveston are participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks, offering multi-course meals varying in price from $20 for lunch to $45 for dinner. Restaurants will donate $3 to $7 per meal sold to the Houston Food Bank.

Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest event of its kind in the U.S. and benefits the Houston Food Bank. Participants in Houston Restaurant Weeks served almost 400,000 diners which raised more than $2 million for the food bank.
