Curls + Brunch
I challenged Houston's humidity with my hair....I failed.
But, it was nice while it lasted!
Do you ever recall as a child hearing your mother say that she was going to meet up with her friends for a late morning meal. Or even going out with your friends for an early afternoon meal? I am not sure where the concept of brunch came from but, I like it. In the last few years, I have 'brunched' a lot! That 11am-1pm time frame is just perfect to have a breakfast-lunch combination meal. My father pokes fun of the idea and calls it "fancy" while my kids consider it fun with mom and my friends consider it girl talk time. I love it all the same.
Brio Tuscan Grille:
My kids are not yet at the age where they get excited about a hole in the wall Indian Restaurant but, they are at an age where they like to try different foods and be out of the house with me.
I always pass up Brio because it is a chain restaurant and there is nothing extremely special about the menu. The other times I have dined here was due to someone else's planning. Although I do not have any complaints and the food is good. I do leave here pleased each time.
|Lobster and Crab Cake|
This is a quaint little place hidden in Rice Village but, boy is the food good! My friends and I gathered for some fresh plates.
|Lox & Avocado Toast|
|Lemon Pudding Cake|
