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.
