At the end of October, we met for our monthly brunch outing at Henry's Majestic.
It was a gorgeous day, so we sat on their huge patio.
While a bit pricey ($10/glass), one of the best parts of the brunch at Henry's Majestic is their sparkling wine bar. First, you pick the sparking wine of your choice, and then you add whatever you want from the lovely bar...
I went with blood orange puree, oranges, and bourbon brown sugar strawberries. It was delightful.
Reports were that the Garden Bloody Mary and Fords Cooler (gin, grapefruit liquor, cucumber water, and lemon sugar) were also delicious.
We split the chicken and waffles appetizer. Because...obviously.
I greatly appreciated that they were came with boneless fried chicken as well as both syrup and gravy. Worth every calorie.
And then it was time to sample the entrees.
Laura ordered the Black Cherry French Toast (shocker!), which she really liked despite the fact that she normally doesn't love cherries. The French Toast was served with a Cabernet black cherry compote, sliced almonds, and a cardamom cream.
Jill and I both ordered the Al Pastor Pork Benedict served on crispy arepas. It was amazing.
It was so beautiful as well. I had to take a close-up...
My only complaint was that it didn't have more of a sauce....but overall a dish I would definitely order again.
I also got a side of Stone Mill Grits. They were good, but nothing to write home about.
And finally, Sarah ordered the Texas Pho. She had consumed one (or maybe five) too many adult beverages the day before and was desperately trying to cure her hangover.
Her verdict: it cured the hangover but not the "regret and embarrassment" of getting drunk in front of her co-workers. Unfortunately, a good bowl of Pho can only do so much :).
