Monday, February 24
Foodies rejoice: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, has teamed up with some of the city's finest French eateries to celebrate The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Dine from these restaurants' prix-fixe menus, created especially for this spectacular exhibition, and receive a discount to view the show.
Sample classic French brasserie fare with a three-course menu from the special Age of Impressionism menu. Choose from seared diver scallops or hand-cut steak tartare; classic French onion soup or a house salad; roasted young half hen, Brasserie 19 steak frites, grilled veal porterhouse, or grilled wild salmon; and warm chocolate cake or classic vanilla bean crème brulée.
The prix-fixe menu at Restaurant CINQ is inspired by three essentials of Impressionist painting: en plein air, effets de soir, and japonism. Chef German Mosquera’s three-course menu features the choice of smoked salmon salad, country pate, or onion soup; poussin (young chicken), dry-aged beef rib eye, pan-steamed grouper, or petit filet; and the choice of macarons, vanilla crème brulée, or champagne chocolate mousse.
