Chef Austin Simmons said: “While this has been a very challenging year for us all in the restaurant business, we grateful to receive tremendous support to our establishments in The Woodlands and Conroe. I’m honored to partner with Meals on Wheels of Montgomery County and Chef John, to give-back to our community as a token of our appreciation. The ground beef we’re donating is a new Gyulais breed, exclusively available at our TRIS and The Kitchen restaurants, sourced by our team from ranch to fork.”
