Scott Cohen's eagerly awaited Northwest French fantasy land delivers with high style, traditional fare, and a full bar starring the green fairy of French cafe-society lore. -- Ron Bechtol (03/09)
Damien Watel's norhtern venture brings excellent, affordable French cuisine in a sophisticated setting to Stone Oak, with the usual outstanding fish entrees and excellent service. -- Richard Teitz (02/09)
Crumpet's set some new standards for San Antonio. I remember being thrilled by the exotic touch of tarragon in the whipped vinaigrette, seduced by the salade niçoise, and beguiled by the green peppercorn Cognac sauce that napped a filet of beef tenderloin. Croissants in the breadbasket were a novelty, too - at least then. Now, of course, the dressing has been copied by many a lesser light, the green peppercorns that were new to our palates have faded from favor, and fast food joints have co-opted the croissant. Or at least a version of it. Maybe it's revisionist history on my part, but your own niçoise seems to have faded a tad, too. Could be I'm misremembering real niçoise olives and crisp, brilliantly green haricots verts, but I was disappointed to find black, California olives (and no green beans) in the salad at lunch recently; as much as California would like to be Provence, these olives won't help their cause, and they especially don't belong here.;- Ron Bechtol
At high noon in Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the world, not much happens, I'd reckon. But at 9 on a Friday evening, the joint is jumping. Well, twitching, at least. A quick walk down Main Street revealed a seemly crowd at the Old Spanish Trail restaurant, chowing down on salads from the chuckwagon bar and swiveling on genuine saddle seats at the counter. Some serious boot scootin' was going on at the Bandera Saloon up the street. And in the ultra-atmospheric basement that is Arkey Blue's Silver Dollar, Arkey and his band were warming up for a long evening of Shiner suds and folks shuffling around in sawdust on the dance floor.;Fool Moon Café, on the other hand, was just winding up its evening operations. Open at odd hours, the diminutive café/bakery/coffee house, with its artfully aged walls, scarred pine floors (we imagined spurs doing the scarring, of course), and tables topped with butcher paper, had filled maybe half of its 45 seats during the two hours it's open for Friday dinner. At the leisurely pace of service, it is hard to imagine that much more of a crowd could be accommodated by Jason Boone and his hard-working sidekick Cory Winfield. We didn't feel neglected, but we did spend the two entire hours at table. - Ron Bechtol
Traditional French with a little flavor of Vietnam cooking. Some of the best seafood according to some.
Authentic bistro fare (and pizza) served in a relaxed, contemporary setting, paired with a good wine list and a full bar.
Don't let the name fool you, but don't let it deter you, either. This family-owned Vietnamese shop serves excellent Indochine fare. The pate sandwich and banh mi are perfect for lunch. -- Mark Jones (03/09)
Romantic and elegant atmosphere with superb French cuisine.
L'Etoile closed its doors unexpectedly this year. You can still enjoy Thierry's cuisine at the Grill at Leon Springs.
Damien Watel's Southtown homage to Belgian food and cafe life feels and tastes deliciously European, from the creamy shrimp fritters to the succulent moules and crispy frites. The fresh fish is usually excellent, too, and a top-notch selection of Belgian beers complements the wine list. -- 01/09
