Downtown has another Sunday morning dining option now that Mesquite Chop House on Union is offering brunch.

Chef Will Johnson (formerly of Grace, Au Fond and Yolo) has created a low country inspired brunch menu that's a little different than the usual brunch offerings. There's charcuterie, fish and several different preparations of grits, like the excellent creamy lemon grits ($5).

I also tried the pain perdue stuffed with fresh fruit compote ($10), which is basically a fancy way of saying "amazing french toast with a warm fruit syrup".

And because brunch isn't brunch without booze, they've got strong Bloody Marys and mimosas. If you're in the service industry, Chef Johnson has your back – restaurant workers get brunch drink specials.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
