Étoile Cuisine et Bar

My final and last stop for my foodie adventures on my Houston Restaurant Week trip was to Étoile Cuisine et Bar located in the Uptown Park area of Houston.  I don’t believe in my 33 years I have ever treated myself to a nice French cuisine.  I have tasted French food but only in passing, like hors d’…
