Late last month, I finally got a bite at Henry's Majestic during a lunch meeting. The Maple Bourbon Meatballs were delicious and it's all I had time to order before dashing out early. I've heard that their brunch is amazing and last Saturday, I had a chance to try the menu with one of my good blogger friends, Kelley of The Style Barn. We sat on the patio and it was poppin' this time!
Is it really brunch if you don't have a cocktail? I had the Seasonal Stone Fruit Smash which was semi-sweet and fruity with herbs and Kelley ordered the Sparkling Bar with champagne, fresh fruits, and housemade cordials.
The biscuits were good. They were regular biscuits; however, the homemade jam was pretty tasty. BUT I did have a little bit of Kelley's coffee cake and nearly melted when I tasted the warm cinnamon streusel cake baked to perfection (not overcooked or undercooked) in a mini skillet drizzled with icing and topped with fresh raspberries. If you're in the mood for a sweet starter, this is a fantastic option that is sharable if you're feeling generous.
For the main dish, I ordered the Black Cherry French Toast with a side of jalapeño bacon (I was feeling spicy and it was to die for) and stone mill grits. Usually when I order french toast, it's strawberry shortcake, lemon zest, or just regular...which are all delicious. I figured I would get something new with the cabernet cherries. While I'm sure anyone could put cherries on french toast, I think what really made this dish unique was the cardamom whipped cream.
Originally, Kelley ordered the Charred Tomatillo Chilaquiles, but decided to get the Porchetta Egg Sandwich instead which is served on a brioche roll with gruyere cheese and Sriracha aioli.
We talked long after our finished dishes were carried away and by the time we left, the dinner crowd was filing in the door. 🙈 I've seen so many have brunches at Henry's Majestic, but now that I've had a chance to try the menu, I would definitely recommend it for a fun, casual brunch with friends. Brunch has become a huge part of our culture, so it's nice to switch things up sometimes. Henry's Majestic's menu will give your friends a chance to try new dishes for brunch rather than the same old options.
Henry's Majestic is located at 4900 McKinney Ave. in Uptown Dallas
I was invited back to Henry's Majestic to try out the brunch menu for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
