How is that place by the way? Itís right next to my house. That little pocket of Montrose is really turning into a cool little spot.

Thx all. We went to La Table Houston and it was not bad. The steak was good but the frites were the big kind not skinny ones.

So my search will continue on..

Don't know about downtown, but Bistro Le Cep on Westheimer at Wilcrest is pretty casual, and has steak frites. Bistro Provence at Memorial and the Beltway is another on the West Side. Much closer in to town, L'Olivier at Westheimer and Taft has steak frites.

I second this, if looking around the downtown area. My understanding is, this is a more casual iteration of Etoile (same owners), in a nice downtown location.

Stay away from Toulouse (fake French food from Dallas).
One of our favorite French restaurants. They have Steak au Poivre and frites (the thin kind). Solid, classic bistro food, as well as more inventive fare, from a talented French chef. Prices similar to La Table bistro section (we were underwhelmed with their food) in a bit of an upscale, yet casual setting.

Is Le Mistral still good? I haven't been there since they moved into their new building. Also, does anyone know if Phillipe Schmit is still active in Houston. I know that his former associate Manuel Pucha has Maison Pucha in the Heights ... I haven't been there, but it has also gotten good reviews.
