A new French bistro at the old Valentino's location, 4331 McCullough Ave., opened Wednesday.
New bistro in Olmos Park opened by former L'Etoile principles.
Restaurateur Michael Burkle, along with Patrick Lanchais and chef Laurent Rea are presenting "elegant casual" bistro fare at Olmos Park Bistro. The menu included grilled meats, salads, an oyster bar and lobster tank.
Burkle is the brother of Thierry Burkle, who owns The Grill at Leon Springs with business partner Armand Obadia. The restaurateurs are veterans of one of the city's long-lived, notable French restaurants, L'Etoile, which is now closed.
The new restaurant will be open from 5-10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 5-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and they will also have Sunday brunch. For more information call 210-826-0222.
