HOLY CANNOLI did you forget to make brunch reservations for family weekend!? AGAIN!?
Fear not, I’ve assembled a list of fail-safe locales where the fun bunch goes to brunch. They have delicious, creative food offerings, and obviously fantastic drinks as well. So hurry up! MAKE THE CALL!
Braindead Brewing – If your ‘rents are cool enough to slide into the hipster-esque scene unnoticed, take them down to Braindead Brewing and make sure nobody is driving. Rack up some cidermosas, a bacon flight, and mole poached eggs while you’re at it.
Rapscallion – Want to get a teensy bit #fancier? But still digging Lower Greenville vibes? And also wnat a really fun word to repeat several times? Rapscallion is your place. Make sure to ask for a Cinnamon Toast Punch, some of their famous Gammy’s monkey bread, and a duck confit hash to top it off.
Remedy – And if Rapscallion has a waiting list the size of your senior thesis, run across the street and hope for a remedy. Wow. Sorry for that. But you should actually go, and make sure to order the bananas foster waffles, a sweet and satisfying egg cream soda, and their unique corn-fried bread.
Top Knot – Drive to Uchi, ignore it, and walk upstairs. Welcome to your Asian-tinged, less expensive than an arm and a leg brunch. Think all your brunch staples with a fun Asian fusion twist, like the miso caramel pull-apart nabe, some potato shishito hash, and/or curried tomato frittata.
Americano – I LOVE any excuse to go to the Joule, so show your parents the swankier side of Dallas and uber downtown to Americano for a delightful Italian-American brunch. Sip on a sanguinella mimosa in between bites of Nutella filled doughnuts and breakfast pizza.
Madrina – And finally, if you’re in the mood for a different kind of fusion, take a ride over to Mexican-French mezcla, Madrina. Make sure to order one of each: a cazuela of beef tenderloin, roasted mushrooms, and fried egg; compressed watermelon with feta and pine nuts; and violet churros.
Happy brunching loves!
