Brunch. Happy Hour. A good bar. They’re the culinary equivalents of your favorite movie star—you can’t get enough, couldn’t ever run out of good things to say about them, and of course, they beg to be photographed.
Thanks to its brilliantly diverse (and ever-expanding) restaurant scene, Houston is a culinary A-lister. Like the Hollywood equivalent, Houston is bursting with talent, though it maintains the humility and organic local love you’d be more likely to find in the indie scene. From brunches that define Instagram heaven to playful offerings from nationally-recognized cocktail experts, we’ve rounded up a handful of springtime brunch, bar, and happy hour offerings you’ll want to revisit again and again.
Let’s start with a few facts: Brunch is the most important meal of the week, and Houston’s home to some of the best-ever brunches. So it follows that if you’re in Houston, you’d better darn well brunch. One of the most decadent, over-the-top Sunday spreads has always been at Uptown mainstay Hotel Granduca—and after a three-year hiatus, the luxury Italian hotel is unveiling a new, better than ever Sunday brunch buffet.
Good news, Houston. Tomorrow, February 18th, is National Drink Wine Day, and oenophiles across the country will be celebrating with a glass or two of their favorite varietals. As it happens, tomorrow is also Sunday—a time for leisurely brunches and long conversation among friends. Happily, one Houston eatery brings the occasions together with an appealing, ongoing special.
Each season, we bring you hand-picked selection of some of our favorite Houston hotspots for after-dinner drinks and scrumptious brunches. Enjoy this collection, as seen in our Holiday/Winter 2018 print issue!
