You always know what you're getting when visiting Etoile Cuisine et Bar--great service and amazing French food. But its new January 2018 Charity Dinner, a four-course delight benefiting The Children's Grand Adventure, is one of the best specials I've had in 20 years of fine dining in Houston. The $65 prix fixe menu ($7 will go toward the children's charity) is truly tremendous, featuring small plates of the finest ingredients, skillfully prepared and presented with classic French techniques.
I opted for the foie gras to open, which is super-rich and offers both sweet and savory flavors. The catch of the day is a light and wonderful second course. For course #3, you can't go wrong with the roasted duck breast, which is accompanied with a polenta cake with mushrooms. I ended with the warm, dark chocolate pastilla with pistachio ice cream--which was a unique and scrumptious way to end an amazing dinner.
I'd highly recommend this charity dinner option while available.
