The perfect dining spot for people who crave good food
Just minutes away from Houston’s renowned Texas Medical Center you’ll find Beaucoup Bar & Grill, which specializes in Creole cuisine and unique bar concoctions. The locale is not fancy by any means. In fact, from the exterior the restaurant may even appear to be a dive bar of some sort. The eatery has definite similarities with its relaxed atmosphere but unlike a typical dive bar, Beaucoup Bar & Grill is known for good food.
There are very few places in Houston where patrons can find authentic Creole cooking and Beaucoup takes authentic to another level. Every- thing on the menu is cooked-to-order and made from scratch. The cooks use premium ingredients and offer healthy alternatives including several vegetarian options. The most popular items on the menu are the crawfish bread, a combination of sautéed crawfish sauce sprinkled with a blend of special spices served on an open-faced loaf of French bread, and the Beaucoup wings that can be tossed in one of 10 different sauces or served “naked.” Honorable mentions include the catfish, which is served with a salad and fries, and the stuffed bell pepper that is filled with a seasoned blend of shrimp, crabmeat, and lean ground beef, and topped with Par- mesan cheese. Perhaps, the most unique aspect of Beaucoup Bar & Grill’s menu is the fresh fruit lemonade that is bottled on-site and comes in five delicious flavors.
“The food is what brings people back,” says Lakesha Reed, co-owner of the establishment. Reed, a New Orleans native, along with partner, Brandon Sam opened the restaurant in November 2009 with the intent to provide an engaging atmosphere at casual prices. The pair has since witnessed Beaucoup becoming the go-to place for numerous people, in- cluding young professionals, in the Houston area. With Beaucoup offer- ing exciting weekly events including Bingo Nights on Wednesdays, Fat Tuesdays, and an appealing Sunday brunch menu, it’s easy to see why the restaurant is labeled as Houston’s finest in Creole cuisine.
