During the month of August, Mark’s American Cuisine restaurant will offer a specially-priced Prix Fixe 3-course lunch menu for $29 and a 6-course dinner Chef’s Tasting menu for $75. In addition to enjoying an epicurean adventure at Mark’s, guests will support children from families-in-need with every purchase of the Prix Fixe lunch and dinner. Mark’s will donate $5 from each Prix Fixe lunch, and $10 from each Chef’s Tasting dinner to SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young.
Chef Mark Cox and his team will prepare several unique Prix Fixe lunch and dinner menus, featuring dishes such as hearth-roasted duck with caramelized mango and summer cherries, and Portobello-crusted halibut with corn polenta and ancho pepper sauce.
“Mark’s is thrilled to offer our guests a culinary experience that will not only satisfy their appetites but that will feed their hearts as well,” said Cox.
Cox was inspired to give back to SAY after Houston Astros George Springer hosted the Inaugural All-Star Bowling Benefit in Houston recently. The overwhelming success and momentum created from the event, with SAY supporters, Springer, his fellow Astros and celebrity friends lead Cox to open up his heart and help send young people who stutter to a life changing summer camp.
Noah Cornman, Executive Director of SAY added: “We are honored to partner with Mark’s American Cuisine. The proceeds from this important program will provide life-changing experiences for under served families, and help send children to Camp SAY: a summer camp for young people who stutter.”
Voted Houston’s Most Romantic Restaurant, Mark’s American Cuisine is located in a 1920’s renovated church. The golden ceilings and candle lit tables provide guests with an intimate escape from the outside world.
