Houston Restaurant Weeks Brunch at Brennan’s!

If you’re having a hard time choosing a brunch spot as you peruse the Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) web site, you really don’t have to go past the B’s!  I visited Brennan’s last weekend and was blown away by the noteworthy HRW brunch menu which is offered on both Saturday and Sunday.

Brennan's HRW Brunch Menu
It’s hard to believe Chef Danny Trace and staff can manage such a great value and still make a $4.00 contribution to the Houston Food Bank on behalf of every brunch guest.

Shrimp Remoulade
The menu includes Brennan’s famed turtle soup as a first course, as well as a portion of Shrimp Remoulade ($3.00 up charge) large enough to be an entrée on it’s own.
Eggs Benedict

Speaking of entrées, it is hard to pass up the classic Eggs Benedict, however tempting the Texas Pecan Crusted Catfish and Chicken Creole may sound. There is something for everyone, with the Creole Ratatouille Tart rounding out the selections.

Brennan’s has always been the epitome of fine dining in Houston. The elegant main dining room with its high back chairs makes you feel like you could stay here for a very long time. Attention is paid to even the smallest detail and such commitment does not go unnoticed.

Let's the games begin!

When it came time for dessert, our server Greg, whipped up one of the best Banana’s Fosters I have ever had, all prepared tableside with great finesse. I swore I was only going to eat a couple of bites, but the perfectly caramelized bananas and velvety ice cream got the better of me.

It takes talent

How cinnamon sparks when introduced to flames!

It’s quite impressive how Brennan’s can offer such a complete dining experience for just $25.00 during HRW. On Sunday you get all this and a wandering Jazz band too! And as luck would have it there are five weekends in August 2014, giving us only more opportunity to "dine out and do good"!
