The Story of 3 Frenchmen

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different .

Coco Chanel

Laurent, Philippe et Jérôme

3 Frenchmen. 

One from Strasbourg, Laurent Réa.

One from Chartres, Philippe Placé.

One from Lyon, Jérôme Sérot.

They will eventually meet in San Antonio. That was 2001. 

They are food lovers. They love talking about it, making it, serving it, and sharing it. 

The brainchild of its three Frenchmen founders, Mon Chou Chou’s menu highlights the cuisine of their homeland, enriched with fond memories of meals shared with family and friends throughout their lives. Many of the featured dishes are directly influenced by the trio’s respective grandmothers, as well as the many inspiring cities and diverse regions of France.  Together they developed an epicurean friendship.

Today, the Brasserie brings their dream to life. Mon Chou Chou introduces their passion for French comfort food in the beautiful Historic Pearl and the city they love to call home.
