In Houston, we're pretty serious about our brunch. Whether it be migas and breakfast tacos or chicken and waffles and loaded Bloody Marys, we have no shortage of awesome spots to get our brunch on. Keeping later hours and killer cocktails in mind, we'll be taking a look at some of our favorite spots around town. See the complete list at the end of this post.
This week, it's the upscale 'hood near the Galleria that gets a closer look.
Note: For purposes of this list, the Galleria is defined as anything west of Highland Village, south of Woodway, east of South Voss/Hillcroft and north of Richmond Avenue.
5. RDG + Bar Annie Sunday 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This may be one of the pricier brunches in town (entrees start at $16), but you can still get bottomless mimosas for just $9. Start with those and move on to upscale breakfast and lunch plates, like a creamy smoked salmon and scrambled egg casserole, bright seared Ahi tuna and roasted beet salad, and a crunchy fried chicken sandwich that will knock your socks off. And if you're really feeling wild, go ahead and start with an order of the oh-so-delightful old-time beignets.
Enjoy a fast-casual lunch at our No. 4 pick.

4. Dish Society Saturday 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; Sunday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Pair straight forward, locally-sourced plates with fair-trade Greenway Coffee and killer housemade elixirs and you have yourself this vibrant, fast-casual eatery. If you come with a crowd, wet your palette with a carafe of mimosas ($13) or "bromosas" ($16) -- made with Karbach Weisse Versa, orange, and lemon juice, because yes! Then move on to cage-free breakfast tacos, Black Hill Ranch pork belly hash, or stuffed French toast smothered with Nutella and seasonal berries.
