My husband and I arrived shortly after the 11:00 opening time. We were immediately seated and given the lowdown on how this brunch operates. For $46 per person, guests have the opportunity to order some items directly from the kitchen and also visit a raw bar station inside by the bar and a grill station out on the patio. Drink specials include bottomless Mimosas or Sangria for $6, Bloody Mary's and Mojitos for $7 a piece and discounts off bottles of wine.
We decided to start with a bottle of pink Burgundy bubbles and ordered some fish empanadas from the kitchen to get started. We then decided not to sit and wait but to hit the raw bar station. The options seemed endless with a choice of fresh oysters on the half shell, large cold boiled shrimp, pre-cracked Jonah crab claws, sashimi and tiradita, three types of ceviche and four kinds of loaded tostadas. We arrived back to the table with our plates as our bottle arrived with the yummy little empanadas following shortly.
Next, I tried the Chupe de Camaron from the kitchen, it was a full and filling bowl of shrimp soup. From the patio spread, I enjoyed a serving of seafood paella and a cochinita pork taco. Other options outside included Black Fideua, lamb barbacoa tacos, grilled clams and smoked mussels. We were told that the patio offerings change from week to week.
My take, it sounds a bit pricey but it was worth it! This is unquestionably one of the most protein packed brunches I've seen.
The brunch at Peska is highly recommended as one of the best brunch buffets in Houston.
