Caesar Salad Competition Returns to Hilton University of Houston 9/23/2014

HOUSTON – Who makes the best Caesar salad in Houston? It's up to the foodies to decide, when some of the city's top chefs and restaurants bring their culinary skills to the Hilton University of Houston for the 30th Annual Caesar Salad Competition.

On Friday, October 10, contestants will once again compete for garlicky glory in four categories. Winners in the Classic, Creative and Best Presentation categories will be selected by a panel of judges. Lettuce-loving guests will then cast their votes for the coveted Consumer's Choice award. Competition will be stiff, including mouth-watering creations from 1600 Bar & Grill, the Westin Houston Downtown, Quattro, Peli Peli, Kiran's, Eric's Restaurant, Bistro Menil, the Fish and Knife, the San Luis Hotel, Hyatt Market Street – The Woodlands, the Café on the Lake Omni West, the Lancaster Hotel, Radio Milano – Hotel Sorella City Centre, The Bird & The Bear Bistro, the Magnolia Hotel and the Marriott Westchase.

Sponsored by the Food & Beverage Managers Association of Houston, My Table Magazine and the University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, the Caesar Salad Competition is more than just a salad soiree—it's a chance to enjoy great food, wine, beer and an outstanding silent auction for a good cause! Proceeds go toward the Food & Beverage Managers Association of Houston's scholarship fund, which benefits hospitality students at Hilton College.

Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the door. The festivities are from 5-8 p.m. Complimentary parking will be available in the Hilton University of Houston garage. To purchase tickets, visit
