The Montrose space that formerly housed Cafe Azur will soon become La Villa Saint-Tropez, a Mediterranean and French eatery.
Back in April, the Houston Chronicle reported that the owners of Victor, the chic Montrose lounge that opened back in January, would take over the space at 4315 Montrose Boulevard. Now, we’ve got a little more clarity on what the restaurant is going to look like. La Villa Saint-Tropez will continue to offer a French Riviera vibe, just in a completely different way.
The space’s former beach-chic decor will be replaced with midcentury modern furnishings in a dining room that will seat 74 guests, according to a post to the restaurant’s Facebook page. Two outdoor terraces will offer patio seating, along with space for private and “semi-private” dining.
As far as the food is concerned, diners can look forward to a menu of French and Mediterranean dishes made with ingredients sourced from local farms and the Gulf, along with pastas made in the restaurant. No executive chef announcement has been made, but Eater has reached out for more details on who will lead the kitchen. La Villa Saint-Tropez’s wine list will focus on bottles from Burgundy and other “boutique” French and Italian producers.
No word yet on when La Villa Saint Tropez will arrive. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
