Kyle Teas has kept to what he knows with Eugene’s, which he named for his father. Open as of this summer in the old Mockingbird Bistro space in Montrose, the place feels like it’s been there forever, which is driven home by its vintage decor, stately bar, and black-and-white family photos, which came over from Danton’s. The decidedly old-school service, courtesy of pros in black bowties, adds to the feeling. The menu is mostly unchanged from the one at Danton’s, and that feels right. Standouts include the rainbow trout in a light, crunchy pecan crust; sides of hearty red beans and rice or okra and tomatoes; and Jonny’s Dessert, a fresh, sweet, and rich combination of cheesecake and key lime pie that makes for a most excellent treat.
