Somehow, perhaps by pure magic, Brassiere Mon Chou Chou managed to capture the essence of a Parisian bistro in the heart of South Texas, and it's utterly delightful! This new restaurant succeeds on every level, from the cuisine to the service, environment and vibe. Let's start with the food. You simply can't go wrong. The Raclette cheese sandwich on a crisp baguette with smoked paprika aioli, cornichon and (if you so choose) Bayonne ham has received rave reviews, but when it comes to must-haves, the Lyon-style onion soup with Emmental cheese and Cognac is as close to heaven on earth as one can get. The Lobster Bisque with its puff pastry cap is also impressive. Dishes may come and go, but hopefully the crisp duck confit in a green peppercorn sauce will stand the test of time. Every single bite here titillates the tongue.
- Best Restaurants: "They also feature a phenomenal brunch on Sunday, but you'd better make reservations weeks in advance."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Mon Chou Chou is undeniably one of the best new restaurants in town and easily competes with even the most established fine dining offerings.
