Mussel fans, rejoice! The fantastic fare from the former Cafe Montrose has moved to the Washington strip and been renamed Broken Spoke Cafe. Yeah, I don't get the name, but the fare is all Belgian and the mussels are the best I've had anywhere, including overseas. The proprietor is in fact the same lady from Cafe Montrose, now a Mademoiselle instead of Madame (thus the change in restaurant). She's kept the important things on the menu, including the moules and frites for about $16 in about 8 varieties. My friend had the roquefort mussels that are in a creamy sauce and were amazing. I chose them in tomato sauce which were also excellent, just not as decadent as the roquefort ones. The proprietor is friendly as always and her heavy accent only adds to the charm. The wine list has about 20-30 wines, many of which are in the mid-$20 range, which is always a plus. The only 2 small disappointments were the onion soup (which wasn't so gratine as it could have been) - not bad but nothing to write home about. And, our waiter lacked a little decorum but was pleasant. We ate on a weeknight and I'm sure the weekend brings better waiters too. All in all, it's a fantastic place. Huge list of Belgian beers, quaint Euro atmosphere. Go.

Many think of the broken spoke as the famous country dance hall in Austin. But this broken spoke refers to a quaint family-run Belgian restaurant just outside of downtown Houston. The broken spoke they are referring to is a bicycle spoke and the restaurant is covered with bicycles---very popular in Europe. The food was scrumptious and served by what seemed to be the chef and owner, a very sweet woman who sounded like French was her first language. I had the cordon bleu along with an excellent Belgian beer called. It came in a large 16oz bottle and was delicious. But, if you??re watching your pennies, be sure to ask the about the beer prices. The beer menu didn??t list any prices and when the bill arrived I found out that my yummy beer was $14.95. At least it wasn??t fifteen dollars! ;-) But that didn??t hinder my experience. I will definitely be visiting this local caf again soon!
