Best French Restaurant - 2009
La Brocante - CLOSED
This little French restaurant is located on Kirkwood just south of Westheimer, not far from the old location of Bistro Provence, which was owned by the same couple, Georges and Monique Guy. La Brocante means "flea market." Monique Guy sells old furniture and bric-a-brac out of the space, and there are price tags hanging on everything. The plates are mismatched, and the plastic placemats are gaudy maps of France with advice for tourists. And yet this eccentric little eatery, run by Houston's favorite French chef, Georges Guy, turns out the best old-fashioned French cuisine in the city. Try the oysters in cream sauce with lardons, the duck confit salad, the chunky country-style pâté, the incredibly tender escargot or any of Georges Guy's daily specials. You can't go wrong. With only 30 seats, the cafe is more like a large dinner party than a restaurant.
