812 Westheimer Road

Rouge is under new management. Thus, the deconstructed plates I so cherished have now disappeared and I am left to ponder hunks of meat swimming in sauce. Sometimes change is not good. I liked the delicate touch of the previous chef. It's not that the food is bad, but the menu reminds me a bit of Ruggles. Big plates with big flavor.

Rekha had the pork chops (yes plural) that she could not finish. The cut was not good compared to images of perfection like the Perry's pork chop. I had the seafood plate that came with a lot of seafood. Although the scallops tasted fine, they lacked that sweetness I love so much. The shrimp was a bit overcooked and the fish tasted like decent fish. In otherwords, nothing overwhelming or bad. It's just that for this price, I expect much better quality.

Desserts were available but were not memorable. Rouge is worth a revisit, but I'm going to have to change my expectations. Maybe I expected too much French when they were clearly going for modern Americana.
