What's not to love about French food? It's buttery, rich and completely decadent; there's little hope for a healthy meal at a French spot, and that's precisely the point. Perhaps the only deterrent to dining at a French restaurant seems to be the dressed-up atmosphere and reservation-necessary standard with which many places are associated. Although Houston has seen an abundance of French options that are anything but stuffy in the last few years: Salé Sucré, La Balance and Café Rabelais (where you can't even make a reservation), just to name a few.
In September there will be another laid-back French spot to sate your butter craving. Eric Goldner will open Allô French Rotisserie inside the Vintage Park Shopping Village at 126 Vintage Park, where he promises to serve up satisfying French food in a casual setting. After leading Hubbell & Hudson Bistro in The Woodlands through its initial years as part of the management team, Goldner says he knows exactly what he wants for his own project. "[We'll] stay away from the typical 'white-linen' approach typically associated with French restaurants," Goldner tells Eater.
