Are you hungry? By the end of reading this, you will be.

We’re giving you the low-down on Austin Restaurant Weeks, which begins next Thurs., Sept. 1, and Black Food Week, which is already underway. Here are all the delicious details about the two culinary events.

Austin Restaurant Weeks | Thurs., Sept. 1-Sun., Sept. 11

The 11-day event raises money for the Central Texas Food Bank through specials at local restaurants and bars. In 2019, the event raised enough funds to provide 890,000+ meals for food-insecure Texans.

About 75 businesses are participating this year. Here are a few places we recommend:

Summer House on Music Lane

Dine on a two-course meal with multiple options such as a chicken caesar salad + peach hand pie.

1417 French Bistro

The French restaurant is offering a four-course meal for $60 + a cucumber gimlet featuring St. Germaine and fresh basil.


Get a $60 dinner special featuring Intero’s signature Italian fare, the result of 35+ years of collective experience.

P6 at the LINE Austin

Take in sunset views of Lady Bird Lake while sipping on a “Tiki Tepache,” which contains Tito’s, mezcal, pineapple tepache, allspice, orgeat, and lemon.

Black Food Week | Now-Wed., Sept. 18

This year marks the 5th annual Black Food Week, an event hosted by the Austin Justice Coalition to celebrate local, Black-owned businesses. The “week” is actually three weeks, which includes two weeks for restaurants and one week for food trucks.

Each day, Coalition representatives will stop by one of the 70+ participating locations for a “eat-n-greet” from 6-8 p.m. Here are a few spots on the schedule:
