Alex Brennan-Martin's famed Texas Creole Cuisine can now be had on the west side of town. Antique mesquite wood planks line the walls and ceilings of Bistro Alex, and there's an open kitchen where an in-house charcuterie is churning out such classics as terrine de foie gras, Spanish chorizo and Italian sopressata (salami). The famed turtle soup is also on the menu here, as are other fabulous dishes like shrimp andouillete, mussels and some unbelievable flat breads (try the duck and gala apple version). Whatever you do, leave room for the white chocolate bread pudding, the café au lait cheesecake, or both.
