Not long ago we broke this marvelous story about a food fight that would commence in the Trinity Groves district. Fork Fight will allow you to meet the chefs and owners of all the restaurants that are opening this year, and there are quite a few of them. Check out our original story for the fun details on the bracket-style food competition that actually begins tomorrow evening at the 3015 event center.
First set of restaurants to throw down are Souk (Yaser Khalaf) and Casa Rubia (Omar Flores). This is when the two restaurants will present a duo of four courses, and you are the judge. You decide who moves on to the next level.
The $75 entry fee includes four courses prepared by both chefs and pairings of cocktails and wine. This will be epic, folks. The evening begins at 7pm and you may purchase your tickets at this link. Discount for tables of eight.
