Bistro Louise Review

People drive 30 mi from Dallas to dine on sautéed foie gras with potato-crusted salmon, tangerine-glazed pork loin, and the like. Wood-beam ceilings and flowered tablecloths add to the charming French setting of this neighborhood favorite. Executive chef and owner Louise Lamensdorf trained in Europe and delights in sharing Spanish, French, and Italian techniques with her devoted customers, who also call on her for catering and cooking classes.

    Divine dining in Fort Worth

    If you are looking for a good place to eat in Fort Worth with a French/Mediterranean flavor, look no further. Bistro Louise is tucked away on the west side of downtown. It is a small place, so call ahead for reservations just in case. The dining is great, and even better are the Sunday Brunches. Louise is the namesake and head chef and she puts out a great buffet for brunch. The appetizers include many pastries, wide variety of cheeses, and fresh fruit that rivals fruit anywhere. The main course usually has many great meats from tenderloin to pecan crusted chicken; in addition to the meats they have fabulous malt waffles and poached eggs on Portobello slices. The desserts are to die for, the truffles are very rich and the pastries are light and wonderful. The buffet always includes much more and often has a few flavor combinations that I wouldn’t normally try, but don’t be afraid to try something new here, I have yet to be let down. I also hear that they have a new menu coming out with special pricing to help make it more affordable in this recession.
    I have family in Fort Worth and brunch at Bistro Louise has become a tradition. A must try if you are in the area.
