Founded in 1994, My Table is Houston’s original food and dining-out magazine. Our readers depend on us for accurate, objective information on what’s hot, where to dine and news from the local food, wine and cocktail world. My Table magazine is published by Lazywood Press twice a year, and our single-topic Ultimate Food Lover’s Guide to Houston is also published twice a year, for a total of four quarterly publications.
The Spring/Summer issue of My Table magazine is released the first week of March, and the Fall/Winter issue is released the first week of September. The two editions of The Ultimate Food Lover’s Guide to Houston alternate with the magazine and are published in June and December.

Our website my-table.com delivers robust bites of Houston restaurant news between print editions of My Table magazine. Online readership is more diversified – our readers want to get a first look at newly opened restaurants and bars, read tongue-in-cheek features on the current season or explore a local food trend. Hungry Houstonians rely on our Culinary Calendar to keep them in-the-know of upcoming events and to get the first scoop on special promotions and ticket sales to festivals and galas. SideDish, our digital newsletter, is emailed on Thursdays with a full roster of our stories for the week, plus upcoming events set for the weekend.
There are two banner positions and three sidebar positions available for online advertising. Request our media kit for specs and rates. If you are interested in bundling various advertising options – both digital and print together, for example – we are happy to work within your budget. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
