Mesquite Chop House Starts Low-Country Style Brunch
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.
Brunch is served at Mesquite Chop House on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
