Oui Oui! French Fest Features Bubbly, Bites — and a Cool Crowd
WEST HOUSTON’S THE Cannon was the site of this year’s French Festival, hosted by the nonprofit French-American Chamber of Commerce Texas.
As could be expected, the fine wine and fab food did not disappoint. More than 20 restaurants — including French faves Le Meridien and Artisans, and celebrated spots such as MAD — provided beautiful bites such as caviar, foie gras and lobster bisque.
The crowd of 400-plus spread out within the sprawling space, admiring featured artists’ work and listening to French-inspired tunes while sipping the abundance of wines and Champagnes on offer. The “bubbles lounge” touted exclusive bottles for select VIPs. Cheers!
