GO TEXAN Restaurant Roundup
AUSTIN -- Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples is calling on chefs and restaurant owners committed to buying and serving local ingredients to bring the best of Texas to the table during the sixth annual GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up.
During the statewide dine-out week, Monday through Sunday, July 22-28, GO TEXAN member restaurants are offering special Texas menu items or a Texas food-and-beverage pairing. Participating restaurants will also donate to local food banks.
“Meals at your favorite restaurant always taste better when they are created with Texas ingredients,” Staples said. “The abundance and quality of products produced by our farmers, ranchers, winemakers, and fishermen provide Lone Star chefs with the perfect opportunity to feature fresh Texas fare. ... I encourage chefs to take part in Texas’ only statewide dine-out week dedicated to serving locally produced Texas food and beverages and encourage patrons to ‘Go Out. Go Eat. GO TEXAN.’”
GO TEXAN is providing posters, save-the-date cards, and other marketing materials to participating restaurants to help inform consumers of this opportunity to enjoy the best of Texas.
Establishments interested in becoming a GO TEXAN restaurant and becoming eligible to participate in Round-Up can visit www.GOTEXAN RestaurantRoundUp.com.
