10th Anniversary Dinner Party

April 04, 2019 07:00 PM until April 04, 2019

HOUSTON… Through naysayers, winds, rising waters and flames, the Woodway location of Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchens has a lot of reasons to celebrate its tenth anniversary April 4.

And celebrate it will!

On Thursday, April 4, the restaurant at 6401 Woodway Drive will open its doors to friends, fans and guests for a one-night-only five-course tequila dinner featuring some of Sylvia’s most loved food items as well as one course dedicated to the debut of an all-new enchilada. There will be lots of new drinks, a wide sampling of food and even live music.

The dinner begins at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 4 at the Woodway location. The cost is $85 per person plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are required and seating is limited. Call 713-334-7295.

Included on the menu will be one course of Parrillada Bites which includes mesquite-grilled carne asada, jumbo shrimp and quail. Another course features a petite enchilada tour featuring two of Sylvia’s favorite enchiladas from south of the border and two more from the north. There will also be an appetizer-sized portion for the start and a dessert to finish it off. Each course is paired with a tequila Margarita, cocktail or tasting.

One big highlight of the evening will be the second course, when Sylvia debuts her newest enchilada filled with wood-fired cabrito. The name of this new addition, chosen from contest entries open to all, will be disclosed that night. The winner receives two seats at the dinner.

As the second location of Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen, a lot of people warned her it would not be a good idea. After all, the first, opened in 1998, was in far west Houston in a hard to find spot and funky neighborhood. Woodway was, well, not that.

Well, old and new fans found her and the place quickly became a success, but also finding it were several tropical storms and a hurricane or two. None every damaged or flooded the spot but they did cut it off from anyone getting to it. Then, in 2016, an early morning fire caused extensive damage in the kitchen and closed the restaurant for more than two weeks. She returned all the same and the attention even brought in more fans.

Going on 10 is looking real good.
