Annabelle's Brasserie—a modern French restaurant—will open Oct. 18 at Autry Park, a 14-acre mixed-use development on the western edge of Buffalo Bayou Park.

Annabelle Brasserie’s architecture was designed mindfully to incorporate elements of a Parisian cafe and fine European dining, according to an Oct. 12 news release from Berg Hospitality Group, which conceived and developed the restaurant concept.
