    June 3, 2019
    Located in the très chic One Park Place tower, is a quaint French bistro with all the food and fare of Paris, but none of the arrogance.

  • Brunch of the Month: Harold's
    April 1, 2019
    Nestled on bustling 19th Street in The Heights, is a Louisiana oasis serving up authentic Southern Creole cuisine that has been delighting Houstonians for years.

  • Brunch of the Month: BB Lemon
    February 28, 2019
    Located on Washington Avenue, BB Lemon , the cozy sister restaurant to the masculine B&B Butchers , is Benjamin Berg’s new restaurant that is brightening up the Houston restaurant scene – and no, not just because of the neon yellow sign out front. Like an old-school lemonade stand, there is something refreshing and nostalgic about BB Lemon upon first glance. The green, wood paneling mixed with the vintage-inspired marquee give a retro feel that’s immediately welcoming....
  • Brunch of the Month: La Table
    January 31, 2019
    Forget that tired cliché that French restaurants are stuffy and pretentious because this uptown location offers all the class without any of the attitude. Located in the trendy BLVD Place development near the Galleria on Post Oak, French-inspired La Table fits right in with the high-end stores that populate the area but is neither judgmental nor stingy. With a distinction between the upstairs and downstairs dining spaces as clear as Downton Abbey, La Table has two main dining spaces that
  • Brunch of the Month: Poitin
    December 9, 2018
    Tucked away in Sawyer Yards is Poitín , a bar and restaurant from Ian Tucker that bears its namesake with an Irish spirit that predates whiskey. It may be a little ironic that a bar named after what some nickname “Irish moonshine,” specializes in down-home Southern classics with a twist. And, with all the winks to alcohol, it’s no surprise this dining hotspot is a perfect brunch choice, not only because the food menu is outstanding, but the drink menu is just as...
  • Brunch of the Month: Vibrant
    November 5, 2018
    Just one trip to this Montrose breakfast and lunch eatery and you’ll know why its name is Vibrant . The plates are colorful, artistic and ready for their Instagram close up. It comes as no surprise that Vibrant is the lovechild of former Museum of Fine Arts Houston curatorial assistant Kelly Barnhart, who injects the Houston culinary world with the same holistic and self-care philosophy she has adhered to for years. Vibrant is not just about the food, it’s aim is to promote a...
  • Brunch of the Month: Weights + Measures Credit: Weights + Measures
    September 4, 2018
    The modern industrial building that houses New American eatery Weights + Measures in Midtown doesn’t immediately portray the softness of a common bakery. The earthy tones of the scored concrete floors, the exposed concrete beams that span the length of the ceiling, the unpainted wood shiplap framing a wide doorway into the back dining room, the clean lines of the sleek mid-century furniture, the huge antique warehouse windows framed by whitewashed cinder blocks, and the weathered...

    Stepping into Common Bond Café & Bakery is like stepping into a pristine yet indulgent dream, surrounded by sights and scents that will practically lift you off of the ground like a cartoon character smelling a pie on a windowsill.

Upon opening the door, you are met with specialty coffee complete with fancy latte art, an array of colorful and delicate macarons arranged with an artistic touch, fragrant breakfast notes of cured meats and...
  • Brunch of the Month: Alice Blue
    June 2, 2018
    No restaurant embodies the cool, laid-back aura of The Heights more than Alice Blue . This modern American Bistro is open seven days a week but it is their weekend brunch menu that keeps hungry Houstonians coming back for more. Upon entering the quaint restaurant, guests are greeted by a ray of light and an open and relaxed feeling. Oversized booths in cool greys and blues line both sides of the restaurant with walls adorned with a geometric wallpaper that adds pops of yellow. A panel of thin
