Étoile Cuisine et Bar Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Philippe Verpiand has created a slice of Paris in Houston’s upscale Uptown Park mecca. Étoile is a perfect spot for lunching while shopping, or meeting friends for Sunday brunch. Dinner caters to romantic couples craving tartare de boeuf and sole meunière. Start your meal with garlicky escargots and a goat cheese salad while deciding between traditional mains like the authentic coq au vin with creamy mashed potatoes or the mussels swimming in white wine and cream served with a side of pomme frites. Choose a bottle of French wine, perhaps the 2002 Daniel-Etienne Defaix Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet, if it’s a special occasion, or a craft cocktail to pair with your meal. And make sure to sip a glass of port with the pistachio napoleon or a least the cheese plate with black cherry jam. Sunday brunch begins with a fruity Bellini and continues with buttery croissants and smoked salmon eggs Benedict or maybe the Serrano ham salad. Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy the French fare bolstered by professional service.
