Good news, Houston. Tomorrow, February 18th, is National Drink Wine Day, and oenophiles across the country will be celebrating with a glass or two of their favorite varietals. As it happens, tomorrow is also Sunday—a time for leisurely brunches and long conversation among friends. Happily, one Houston eatery brings the occasions together with an appealing, ongoing special.
Every weekend, Toulouse Café and Bar in the River Oaks District offers half-priced bottles of rosé alongside their usual assortment of tempting brunch fare. The café is known for its fin de siècle Parisian charm, from the cozy bistro tables throughout to the black and white hexagonal tiles outside.
That’s reflected in the brunch menu, too, which features all the French staples you’d expect, from omelettes and escargots to quiche and duck confit. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, it’s hard to beat the pairing of rosé and Toulouse’s New Orleans Beignets, served with a rich and creamy cappuccino sauce.
Brunch at Toulouse is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended and may be made online or by calling the restaurant at (713) 871-0768.
