I’m baaaaack … with brunch!

Yawwwwwn! Just waking out of my holiday hibernation, y’all. So glad to be back! I’ll admit I’ve slacked these past couple weeks, but now that party season is ramping up again — helloooo, Super Bowl!! — I have so many events to share with you! Let’s get started, shall we?

A while ago, I checked out the brunch service at The Place at Perry’s in Uptown with Curl Girl. I needed a change of pace from the many super-casual bar brunches I’ve partaken of in Dallas — not that there’s anything wrong with those; I LOVE the Meridian Room’s wif all my heart — so I was happy to go upscale this once. Place at Perry’s was my favorite Restaurant Week destination last year, so I knew it wouldn’t disappoint …

But just to make sure, I started with the very wedge salad I so-super-loved at RW. Mmmmm, crisp wedge of iceberg topped with blue cheese crumbles, bacon chunks, tomatoes and a luscious champagne dressing — it’s just one of the best I’ve had. Definitely woke up my tummy and taste buds.

The variety of benedicts at Place at Perry’s is insane, so Curl Girl and I went with a couple. She had the California benedict with roasted turkey and avocado pico on an English muffin (above), and I went with the crab cake benedict (top) with poached eggs over thick, meaty crab cakes, all of it topped with chipotle hollandaise. Yurm. Both dishes came with a side of delicious purple potatoes.

Curl Girl and I decided that we wanted to explore the menu outside of the savory stuff, so we ordered a fruit-topped Belgian waffle to share (above). Definitely satisfied the sweets craving … as did our potent Morning Sun cocktails — OJ, Prosecco and Aperol. I can’t wait to have a decadent, splurge-y brunch at The Place at Perry’s again.
