Some of Houston's top restaurants dished out some bites at the 14th Houston Cellar Classic Saturday at The Tasting Room's Uptown Park location.

The event, held annually by the Tasting Room, benefits Genesys Works Houston, which provides skills training and work experience for high school students in underserved communities. Guests moved from table to table, sampling up to 75 wines from across the world and enjoying tastings from eateries like Uchi, Poitín, Bosscat Kitchen & Libations, and the newly opened Sing, among other places.

VIP guests had the opportunity to sample an additional 25 high-end bottles. Chef Brandi Key, Houston Food Finder's Pheadra Cook, and master sommelier David Keck judged the food, and High-Tech Rednecks performed on the overcast and cool day.
