La Table
Offering the crème de la crème in contemporary French fare, La Table’s caramelized cheese souffle, made of Comté cheese in a frothy butternut squash velouté, is exceptional, while its Valrhona “guanaja” chocolate souffle for two is simply magnifique. 1800 Post Oak Blvd., Ste. 6110, 713.439.1000

Maison Pucha
The brothers Pucha weave their Ecuadorian heritage into every facet of the menu at this Heights gem—right down to the souffle en noir et blanc, crafted from Ecuadorian Pacari chocolate and finished tableside with passion fruit crème anglaise and vanilla ice cream. 1001 Studewood St., Ste. A, 713.637.4976

On the menu since 1972, Tony’s giant ethereal classic souffle, which rings in at 80 fluid ounces and serves up to eight, is a sight to behold. Available in every flavor imaginable from raspberry to tiramisu; Tony’s personal fave is the apricot with caramel. 3755 Richmond Ave., 713.622.6778

Let yourself be transported to Paris with a souffle big enough for two at this River Oaks District hot spot. In Grand Marnier or chocolate and finished tableside, the 20-ounce beauties are a study in perfection. 4444 Westheimer Road, Ste. E100, 713.871.0768

rise n°2
Truffle-infused mushroom or praline pecan. Cauliflower with brie or classic chocolate. With 10 savory and six sweet souffles available year-round, you’re spoiled for choice at rise n°2. For a taste of the holidays, try the seasonal eggnog flavor. 1700 Post Oak Blvd., Ste. 290, 2nd Floor, 713.850.7473
