Best Brunch: Eunice

With its kitchen run by chef Drake Leonards — whose impressive portfolio includes top NOLA spots like August, Domenica, and Shaya, this modern Cajun-Creole brasserie brings the wow factor to Greenway Plaza. And that's not just when it comes to the eats (though we promise we’ll get to those). Rustic-chic accents and lighting, soaring windows overlooking a grove of century-old live oaks, and a striking, U-shaped quartz-topped bar set the stage for a stunning brunch to come. Snag a table to dine on nostalgic Southern nosh with a high-end kiss, with brunch highlights from Cajun duck poppers and fried quail with Tabasco honey to blue crab Benedict and a hanger steak & eggs dish that comes smothered in béarnaise alongside French fried potatoes.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
