Second Sunday Brunch Bunch: CBD Provisions

For this month's installment of the Second Sunday Brunch Bunch, we met up at CBD Provisions. CBD is the new restaurant at the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas and is described as a "modern Texas brasserie" with a "commitment to local and sustainable sourcing."

Everything was incredible, from start to finish. 

The non-pregnant ladies at the table started with some fun cocktails, including the Breakfast Martini, French 75, and Bloody Mary. 

And a couple of these drinks were free because the martinis took a little longer than normal to make. That is what I call great service. 

Even though I couldn't partake in the adult beverages, I did have the best orange juice ever. I have no idea how they make it taste so magical. And I can only imagine how marvelous it would be to have a mimosa made with this juice. 

We also started with the 'Nduja Pimento Cheese. It wasn't quite what we were expecting (a bowl of pimento cheese with bread on the side), but it was really good! They spread the pimento cheese on sourdough, toast it, and then top it with vinaigrette-coated arugula. It was cut into four sections, which was perfect for our group. 

Laura ordered the Sourdough French Toast, which is served with Texas pecan "nutella" and bananas. It was delicious and HUGE!

Erin got the House Made Strozzapretti with wild mushrooms, soffritto, fresh cheese, and a soft farm egg. She absolutely loved it and ate every bite. 

Jill and I both ordered the Smoked Brisket Hash with roasted salsa, potatoes, fresh cheese, and baked eggs (which I had to order over-hard). It was so good, and the salsa is what really put it over the top for me. 

And we clearly had to get a side of the House Made Shells to share…which was a very good decision.

Do yourself a favor and get over to CBD Provisions very, very soon.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
