Where to Eat in Houston Right Now

The gist: Michelin star chef Alain Verzeroli, who worked under late culinary legend Jöel Robuchon for nearly 20 years, masterfully harnesses the power of peak-season ingredients at this artful French restaurant. Tucked away in the Museum of Fine Arts campus, guests can wine and dine in full view of the majestic sculpture garden.
The food: With Le Jardinier—French for “the gardener”—sporting a menu of well-balanced creations, guests with diverse palettes will have no problem scoring a dish overflowing with nutrients. Seafood lovers can bask in the buttery King Kampachi, emblazoned with squash and white sesame, while health nuts can slice into a grass-fed Tenderloin partnered with nutty ratte potatoes and gem lettuce. Pastry chef—and fellow Michelin Star recipient—Salvatore Martone’s desserts, like the Venezuelen Dark Chocolate Crémeux draped in salty caramel sabayon, are equally as stunning.
The cost: Seasonal tasting menus $130 - $240, a la carte starters $18 - $34, a la carte mains $30 - $48, a la carte desserts $15 - $25, a la carte cocktails and wine by the glass $13 - $34.
