Gaucho at Brenda's French Soul Food: Brenda Buenviaje's Creole-inspired restaurant in the Tenderloin is twice the size it used to be, the decor as monochromatic and still as the old space was color-soused and cluttered. But the legendary brunch lines at Brenda's French Soul Food have not abated, nor has the reputation of Buenviaje's biscuits, chocolate-filled beignets, po-boys, and shrimp and grits. At dinner, the old favorites are tasting a little tired. The barbecued oysters, however, are alternately fiery and creamy, and the banana-bread pudding is so rich you'll have to devour it in microscopic spoonfuls. Always worth ordering: the wall specials, wich range from crawfish Monica to muffaletta.
