The newest concept from Charles Clark and Grant Cooper—the folks behind Houston’s much-loved Ibiza and Catalan restaurants—is a natural evolution for the duo. Like its predecessors, Brasserie 19 offers guests a place to feel at home, to dine simply, with a well-executed menu of high-quality French fare.
Situated in the heart of Houston’s affluent River Oaks neighborhood—within the 77019 zip code, hence, the Brasserie 19 moniker—the menu features classic French brasserie fare with modern American influences. Gulf Coast Bouillabaise, Texas Sweet Onion Soup and Steak Frites are just a few among the menu’s offerings, as is an expansive and well-priced wine list, supplied via an iPad.
Grab a seat inside, where cool whites and grey hues reign supreme, alongside antiqued wood and white marble accents. Grey leather banquettes line one side of the dining room, while comfortable brasserie-style chairs and white linen-and-butcher-paper-covered tables contribute to the casually-elegant vibe. Brasserie 19 is open for lunch and dinner daily.
