Houston may have the exact opposite climate of the breezy Mediterranean, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t make for a perfect home for Café Azur, Montrose’s newest restaurant.
The Houston Chronicle reports that restaurateur Sidney Degaine has opened Café Azur at 4315 Montrose. The restaurant is inspired by the cuisine and vibe of its namesake, France’s Côte d'Azur, and will feature Mediterranean cuisine inspired by the region and prepared by a chef trained in France.
The menu for Café Azur features classic French fare like red snapper in a bouillabaisse broth, whole roasted fish, and steak tartare. You’ll also find plenty of fancy touches, like foie gras, fresh summer truffles, and duck confit. The wine list will (of course) focus heavily on rosé.
Cafe Azur will soon add brunch service, but in the meantime you can check it out for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is open from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday & Saturday.
