Cool facts:

  • The charcuterie program is heavily influenced by executive chef Kris Jakob's father, who taught him the ways of meat curing when he was just a youngster.

  • No bottle of wine on their list exceeds a $35 price tag.

  • There's a giant wall of windows on one side of the restaurant where you can watch students cook as you munch on frites and sip your French wine.

The grand opening of Kris Bistro also included the kick-off party for the gala being held at Houston Country Club in November. Culinary Institute LeNôtre, which is where Kris Bistro is located, is hosting a scholarship gala called Champagne & Chocolat…. & Caviar. Just the word caviar raises this gala's status into an above average level of worthiness.
