We've known about the high quality of food since their days at old Westheimer location.
This location is charming also, just at edge of the Historic Avondale District. It was a cold dreary day but inside is cozy and welcoming.The noise level is low and the crowd seems casual and upbeat. We dined early, the bread basket was warm and tender. We ordered the large steamed mussels (just white wine, celery and onions) to share plus a veggie plate. The creamed spinach and purple cabbage are the best in Houston, the Brussel sprouts will make you discount everything you've ever heard about Brussel sprouts---they were yummy! The cylinder cut potatoes needed a bit more seasoning. Also ordered were monk fish, very tender and flakey with subtle flavors and the salmon-- a rich sauce to die for. I found myself dipping my bread in the mussel broth---it was sublime . All the portions are huge, the waitstaff attentive.
We celebrated on a Thursday, and around 7pm a charming older gentlemen sat down and played familiar French songs on an accordian. The effect went beyond charming. The crowd seemed equally mixed with young and older couples.
