Second Sunday Brunch Bunch | Henry's Majestic

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 :).

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 instead. 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; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; 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; bad hair days; snoring; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); Miracle Whip; scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and working out. I think that sums it up.
