LISTICLESZagat Houston's Amber Ambrose lists 10 Galleria-area spots to hit up this holiday season when a refueling meal for your shopping break is in order. On the list is Etoile: "Just over a year old, this rustic-yet-refined French restaurant from chef Philippe Verpiand is just getting started. In addition to traditional French favorites, you'll find a seasonal menu and one-heck-of-a-deal social hour during the week." [Zagat]
