This eccentric little eatery is run by Houston's favorite French
chef, Georges Guy and his wife Monique. With only thirty seats, the
café is more like a large dinner party than a restaurant. 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. Try the duck confit, country-style
pate, tender escargot or any of Georges Guy's daily specials. You
can't go wrong.
