If you caught my Instagram Story from Sunday afternoon, you know that I went to The Dunlavy for brunch. The space is open and gorgeous with hanging chandeliers, floor to ceiling windows, and a plethora of green surrounding the restaurant. The wait in the Houston heat to get inside was less than desired, but that’s what you’d expect for Instagram worthy views and plates. We were seated at a communal table, and when the food arrived it was beautiful. And then we ate it, and there was much sadness followed by regret. Here’s the breakdown:
😔 Avocado Toast $5, poached egg $2: Toast was hard and difficult to cut/eat, avocado good but overall bland
😖 Bacon, Egg & Kale $6.50: Dry, really did not like this at all
😕 Waffle $6, fruit $2: A little dry, but the honey butter made up for it. Fruit was the best part
😌 Brûlée Steel Cut Oatmeal $6: No complaints, this was delicious
😞 Blueberry Colada smoothie $7.50: Basically coconut water, no blueberry taste, not worth it
🚗 Valet Parking $5: if you can find one of the limited public parking spots at the lot entrance/exit, it’s free.
I have been here for lunch, and it was great. Maybe it’s only a bust for brunch. Still worth coming here just for the views. Do it for the ‘gram.
