Latin Restaurant Weeks, a two week initiative promoting Latino-owned restaurants in the Houston area, will launch on June 2. Running until June 16, participating restaurants will offer prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner. Organizers have also announced three ticketed industry events. A restaurant business panel called La Mesa on June 5, a catering showcase called ¡Sabor! on June 12 and La Sorpresa, a five-course, secretive pop-up dinner on June 15. Tickets and information for all three can be found on the Latin Restaurant Weeks Eventbrite page. According to co-founder Karinn Chavarria, a portion of the participating restaurants’ registration fees will be donated to the Hispanic Health Coalition (HHC) for their annual¡Vive tu Vida! Get Up! Get Moving! health fair. Chavarria told ABC13 her company plans to “provide a workshop during [HCC’s] health fair to educate the underserved community.”
