New for 2024!

The Texas Restaurant Association is thrilled to announce a partnership between the Texas Restaurant Show and Eat Local. Eat Often., a grass roots initiative that encourages patrons to support local businesses and cuisine to help bolster regional economic impact. The initiative, which emerged during the pandemic, urged communities to support local restaurants and help them keep their doors open for business.  It has since evolved to become a rallying cry for the restaurant and foodservice industry, driving advocacy of local businesses and local cuisine.
