Soak in some art while you wine and dine on Bistro Menil’s patio.
With the scenic beauty of Menil Park as a backdrop, the minimalist patio at Bistro Menil offers an unparalleled dining experience within Houston. A vibrant red sculpture mimicking a toy jack, made by Houston artist Jim Love, graces the lawn at the front entrance, and the restaurant itself sits steps from the Menil Collection, making it a prime choice for provisions before or after touring the free museum. The modern restaurant offers contemporary European fare for lunch and dinner, along with afternoon tea service Wednesday through Sunday, and a very popular weekend brunch.
