Co-owners Johnny Mandola and Bubba Butera of Damian’s Cucina Italiana invite you roll up your sleeves and join them in a culinary showdown featuring an Italian classic, the meatball. In honor of his late father (Frankie Mandola), this annual event will benefit two of his favorite charities-- The 100 Club and the Italian-American Sports Foundation.
The Meatball Brawl will bring Houston’s most talented and diverse restaurants together to compete and showcase their original creations for hundreds of guests, plus a panel of media and celebrity judges.
The Meatball Brawl is sure to be the best way to spend a Sunday enjoying Houston’s best culinary offerings. Guests are invited to “eat up” the festive atmosphere of a meatball eating contest, wine tastings and musical entertainment while sampling an array of innovative meatball dishes. The following awards will be announced by our Media Judges at the event:
- Best Meatball Dish
