Dallas' Five Best Brunch Spots
Dallas is without a doubt a brunching town. Every Saturday and Sunday, early in the afternoon, those with matted hair, stale breath and perhaps questionable bed mates drag themselves from shades-pulled comfort and into the harsh, bright world, descending upon the city's restaurants en masse. It seems as if every restaurant in town has a brunch menu and specials on one or both days, most touting salty bloody marys and saccharine mimosas.
5. Jonathon's Oak Cliff
Jonathon Erdeljac and his wife Christine built their first restaurant in the space that used to house the Beckley Brewhouse. Jonathon's sports a fresh look and a massive patio perfect for brunching in nicer weather. Erdeljac's chicken and waffles (pictured above) are a must-order, and the place gets busy on weekends. For those who prefer something other than oatmeal in the morning, Jonathon's serves up an affordable breakfast during the week as well.
4. Za Za
What can you say? Catholic school outfits on the staff. DJ music. Champagne. Sunday School brunch is as much an event as a meal, and it's the one brunch I didn't even think about sharing with my mom when she was in town. ZaZa always serves brunch, but every third Sunday of the month things get slightly more sinister. October's will have a Halloween theme.
Bolsa's long had a reputation for a well-executed, farm to table brunch menu. Things can only get better with Jeff Harris at the pass. Boasting a simple but decadent egg sandwich, steak and eggs, and an Evan's Farm Brunch Burger, brunch mainstays are all represented. One of the city's best cocktail lists will keep the lushes entertained as well.
