Houston Press' Description

Chef Johann Schuster has been serving an always-stunning blend of European cuisines at Charivari for the last decade; the name of the Midtown restaurant — which means "beautiful, good mix" in French – doesn't lie. You'll find everything from Italian bucatini and Austrian schnitzel to Romanian goulash and German spaetzle on his standard menu, but seasonal favorites include white asparagus and black bear. Yes, bear. Desserts are made in-house like everything else, and the fully stocked bar makes a great happy-hour destination if busy bars aren't your cup of tea. The service here is old-school to go along with the Continental atmosphere, but everything about Charivari is warm and friendly.

Tips from foursquare

  • CultureMap Houston on 02/28/12

    Try the velvety and very potent Dracula’s Garlic Soup. This version is worth it; it’s also a great cold remedy.

  • You have to try their spaetzle! It'll take you right to Germany!

  • Ed on 04/07/14

    The meatloaf special is completely worth the trip.

  • Ed on 03/28/14

    No idea the name of this amuse bouche, and it is a bit salty, but I appreciated the sample of the European flavors.

  • Pamela O. on 10/24/13

    Very fancy. The location in a strip mall is deceiving. You definitely need reservations!
