Brunch at Triniti

We tried the brunch at  Triniti  last weekend for the first time. We enjoyed it and we will return. It will be a great spot to bring the whole family over the holidays. My meal looked like this picture but also included some healthy greens that were not particularly photogenic though they were delicious.  My entree was the fried chicken with over-easy eggs and we shared a mixed pastry basket and a bottle of Ca' del Bosco Franciacorta sparkling wine.  Southern goodness with Italian refreshment, a recommended way to Sunday brunch in Houston. *Edit - This restaurant unfortunately closed on Sunday, February 5, 2017.

Brunch at Brennan's

Brennan's is a Houston institution. This New Orleans inspired restaurant has been the scene of many of my family's special occasions over the years. My grandmother and my aunt even hosted my high school graduation brunch here when I was eighteen. My husband and I had not been to their brunch in a few years though we have had dinner here many times during that period. We decided it was time to check them out again last weekend and I decided to indulge in the "Digging Texas Creole" option for $32. This pre-set menu was new to me and involved three courses that included fairytale pumpkin and carrot soup, cast-iron roasted vegetable enchiladas with a fried egg on top and ended with Meyer lemon and rosemary sorbet. Absolutely delicious and loaded with veggies, a scrumptiously healthy brunch option. We shared a bottle of brunch bubbles, a Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs 2013 . This is one of our favorites and is always perfect with brunch, you can count on it to be cri

Pappas Bros Steakhouse

My husband and I go to the original Pappas Bros Steakhouse on Westheimer pretty regularly. We like to attend their wine events and then get dinner afterwards. Last night, we just went in for a light meal. By this, I mean, we split a side potato with our full steak entrees. On the wine list at Pappas Bros Steakhouse- the Faury Saint Joseph 2013 . This Rhone Valley Syrah is a great red wine to indulge in now with any of the meat entrees on the menu. This was our second bottle at this location, I highly recommend it.
