Terminal C in George Bush Intercontinental Airport may be the last place travelers expect to find a French brasserie, but Le Grand Comptoir is just that. The decor utilizes dark-wood finishes, rock arches, and red and green tones.

Housed in a 1925 structure built by well-known Houston architect Joseph Finger, Hugo's brings regional Mexican cuisine to the Montrose area. As a Mexican native, executive chef Hugo Ortega has an expert understanding of the country’s earthy, complex flavors.

This little bit of Paris, charmingly set in an unassuming brick house at the edge of the Museum District, is the labor of love of two young Frenchmen, Eric LeGros and Dominique Bocquier. When it opened in late 2007, they brought a homey touch to serious French cooking.

Once a neighborhood icehouse, the renovated building on the corner of Sawyer and Decatur Streets now houses Beaver’s restaurant and bar.

Thanks to a tagline that promises Churrascos is "further south than you have ever been before," patrons expect to find the best Latin American American food in Houston at Michael Cordúa's upscale restaurant, and it certainly delivers.

Often lauded as the best Italian restaurant in Houston, Da Marco is set in an unassuming Montrose cottage that belies an elegant interior of hardwood floors, white tablecloths, and pale yellow walls.

An overnight success when it opened in 2006, Dolce Vita, which occupies a rambling two-story Victorian house, feels like a private—but very welcoming—club for the young and hip Montrose denizens who swarm here every evening, spilling out onto the restaurant's jasmine-covered patio.

Corny to say, but eating at Mark's can be a religious experience, and although it occupies an early 1920's brick church complete with sanctuary, side chapel, choir, and pulpit, it has little to do with the architecture or former tenant.
