red, white and blue eclair

Now that July 4 has passed, it’d be logical to turn to Labor Day as the next reason to celebrate. But overlooking Bastille Day, the French national holiday on July 14, would be a deprivation of deliciousness at some of Houston’s hottest restaurants. Wondering where to get your fix for red, white and blue round two on Saturday?


A’Bouzy (2300 Westheimer Rd., 713.722.6899) is, unsurprisingly, serving up an especially boozy brunch, with $99 bottles of Dom Perignon Brut from 10am until 3pm — or until they run out of the bubbly. Keep the party going at the swanky new Bar Victor (4321 Montrose Blvd., 713.521.2002) lounge in Montrose. DJ Sebastian will spin French beats, and food and drink specials include deals on charcuterie and Croque Monsieurs.

For a more family-friendly treat, hit Sweet Paris (sweetparis.com), which just opened an outpost in Katy, its sixth area location. The creperie is serving a French flag-inspired version of its Very Berry Crème Brulee crepe for just $6.95. And at the darling new Café Poêtes (122 W. Gray St., 346.802.4969) in Midtown, eclairs drizzled with red, white and blue are best washed down with specialty wine cocktails. Oui!

Houstonians have visited the Shaftel family for custom baubles and high-quality gemstones for decades, most recently at their showroom on the ground floor of a Richmond Ave. office building. Now, Shaftel Diamonds has a luxury storefront that's just as radiant as its jewels, located at the corner of San Felipe and Chimney Rock in the heart of Tanglewood.
