Le Mistral

1400 Eldridge Parkway Houston, TX 77077 | Memorial | 832-379-8322

Location Description:

Le Mistral houses not only a restaurant but also a bright, beautiful building next door. There's a full-service bar, a charming patio and even a gourmet food store/boulangerie in case you didn't get your fill of Chef David Denis's food. His brother, Sylvain, runs the front of the house, which is usually filled with Energy Corridor diners as chic as the modern dining room and elegant food. No other French restaurant in town can touch Denis's terrine de foie gras or duck confit.
