FOOD TV – It was inevitable that one Houston chef would come home with the win on this week’s episode of Food Network’s Chopped considering that every contestant hailed from H-Town. After a fierce and meaty battle, Bernie’s Burger Bus chef Justin Turner took home the gold. Scope out CultureMap for a full breakdown of the episode if you missed it. [CultureMap]

WESTHEIMER – Sundays and brunch go together like short ribs & eggs, or at least that’s the way Mark’s American Cuisine sees it. On April 3, the restaurant will launch brunch service every Sunday, featuring main courses like Canadian hard shell lobster salad and grilled Kurobuta pork rack. Brunch will be available on Sunday only from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., with the last reservation at 2 p.m. Go forth, and eat waffles. [EaterWire]

HEIGHTS – As if you needed an excuse, gorge yourself on crawfish this for an excellent cause at Jax Bar & Grill. On Saturday, April 2, Jax will host the first-ever charity crawfish boil, with proceeds benefitting Casa de Esperanza. Your $35 ticket scores two pounds of crawfish, corn, and potatoes. If that’s not enough, additional crawfish can be purchased for $10 per pound. Buy your tickets here. [EaterWire]
