Restaurant Review: Chez Nous

Scott and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Chez Nous in Humble. We celebrated our fist Valentine's day together at Chez Nous, back in 2004, so we decided we were long overdue for a trip back. The owner/chef was the executive Chef at Tony's back in the 80s, so its great food. Chez Nous is French for our home, and its just that...a cozy cottage with seating in various rooms. We were sitting in the library next to some wine bottles. We enjoyed the 5 course chef's table with wine pairing, everything was delicious. We were told the chef's table is logged with each reservation so that diners can have a new experience each time they request it. Chez Nous is worth the drive.

Salad of Raindrop Farms Tomatoes, Organic Field Greens, marinated Red Onions, Feta, Chick
Peas and our signature Vinaigrette
I love tomatoes so this was a treat for me.

Grouper with oranges and roasted fennel

I don't eat a lot of seafood but this fish was light and delicious. The citrus added a nice flavor and was nicely complimented by the roasted fennel.

Pinot Noir
A Classic Country Terrine of Veal and Duck with Cornichons and Sauce Charcutiere

This pate was complete with some bacon...need I say more.

Pinor Noir
Filet w/ Risotto a port reduction

The filet was delicious but the risotto made the course.

Rose Champagne
Passion Fruit-Raspberry Souffle

This souffle was delcicious and I wish we'd had a larger portion. I love anything with raspberries. The rose champagne was the perfect way to end the night.
