Surrealism? Impressionism? Pointillism?
Might as well be what’s-the-pointillism to you.
Which explains why your travel plans never seem to include a trip even in the vicinity of the Louvre.
But there’s hope for your culturally deprived taste buds at Cafe Toulouse, culinary genius Alberto Lombardi’s French bistro, which opens tonight. It looks like a Parisian cafe from the 1900s filled with wainscoted walls, antique mirrors, and cherry-colored Thonet chairs.
And the menu’s just as appealing as the decor: traditional French-Belgian home cooking like steamed mussels in white wine and garlic; cilantro and lime; or chorizo, tomatoes, and bell peppers. The incredible trout amandine with haricots verts shouldn’t be missed, and the Dover sole meunière is a soon-to-be house favorite.
The dishes are so delicious, you may have trouble finding words to describe them.
They are, after all, works of art.
Cafe Toulouse, 3314 Knox Street, Knox/Henderson (214-520-8999).
