Les Givral’s

4601 WASHINGTON AVE. | 832.582.7671

No, it’s not a “new” restaurant but it is a new location with the same excellent fare at unbeatable prices. And it’s quite different from the others. The exterior gives you no clue to the gem that lies within. Modern is not a suitable descriptor; it’s like a piece of art. Art adorns all the walls, from sketches to acrylics to prints. It’s all there and breathes a creative, artistic vibe into the Washington area. The massive dining area is flanked by an incredible 4×4 (yes, actual wood 4×4 pieces) art installation titled “The Nest” – amazing way to take such a mundane (yet vital) material and turn it into something awe-inspiring. “The Nest” has an added value, a bar, nestled inside of it on the opposite side. They stay open until 3am for late night dining so now Les Givral’s can be a destination spot rather than just a starting point. I had a half order of my favorite – #42, the char-grill shrimp – on rice and tried their imperial rolls for the first time. I love the presentation served with the roll. A mound of Romaine lettuce, mint and parsley lie beside it with a cup of fish sauce. The idea is to wrap the roll in the greens, dip it in the fish sauce and prepare to be amazed. The number #42 is pretty much as described. I like to add some peanut sauce and Siracha for kick. However you like to “dress it” or order it, make sure you do it at this location. The food and décor are otherworldly.
