We have now lived for two years in Houston and tried out LOADS of restaurants, and the food is not really great. Unfortunately, not even close to what it should be given Houston's size and importance. There are a few gems, though, and Brasserie 19 is one of them: Nice setting (quite large, actually, about 260 places!), not too noisy considering the crowds, good attentive service, and almost always GREAT food. Excellent seasoning (just the right amount of nutmeg on the gratin potatoes!), great fish preparation - very tasty dover sole, VERY FRESH oysters!!! They are not perfect (the french onion soup had so much bread that it absorbed all of the soup!), but some plates are so good that it evens out. Very much recommended!
