New French Brasserie Opens Soon at the Pearl

Brasserie Mon Chou Chou at Pearl Announces Opening Date – December 7

The team behind San Antonio favorite, Southerleigh, teams up to bring new flavors to Pearl – The concept will boast a menu of classic, but accessible, French comfort foods


Pearl is excited to announce a new restaurant launching at the property, Brasserie Mon Chou Chou. The new restaurant will feature quintessential French comfort food that showcases simple, earthy, flavorful dishes from regions throughout France. As opposed to upscale French restaurants, brasseries are more informal, serving full dinner options but also allowing for a more casual atmosphere of just wine, oysters, cheese plates, and more. “Mon Chou Chou” is a French term of endearment that roughly translates to “sweetie” or “darling.” True to its name, the Brasserie will exemplify a laid back and comfortable atmosphere that serves as a welcome environment for guests at Pearl. Brasserie Mon Chou Chou will be led by French born Executive Chef Laurent Réa, who formerly served as the Executive Chef at Andrew Weismann’s Signature. The new restaurant was conceptualized by Chef Réa and Southerleigh Hospitality Group partners Jerome Serot,  Philippe Placé, and Chef Jeff Balfour. Réa, Placé and Serot all hail from France, but did not meet until they all ended up in San Antonio in 2001. Nineteen years of friendship later, they have joined forces to bring the comforts and flavors of their native France to Pearl. Brasserie Mon Chou Chou will initially open for dine-in service only, with curbside/takeout and delivery to be launched soon.
