OK, I should come clean; my motivations behind this particular story are selfish. I was making dressy plans for Sunday brunch when I got to thinking how great it would be to have a comprehensive list of bruncheries (it's a word, now) that offer bottomless bevs. So without further ado, the best bottomless brunches H-town has to offer:
Michelangelo's — This little Italian restaurant at 307 Westheimer has existed in the same location for 40 years. The only thing better than the live tree growing through the middle of the converted house are the bottomless mimosas at Italian-style Sunday brunch.
Farrago's — Midtown eatery Farrago's, at 318 Gray St., serves bottomless brunch Saturday AND Sunday for $10. With a single costing $5, it'd be irresponsible not to indulge.
Berryhill — Multiple locations make for easy access, but we recommend the Montrose location on the corner of Westheimer and Hawthorne for optimum recovery amongst mimosas, black bean nachos, feather boas and a patio DJ.
t'afia — Hit it up Saturday for the outdoor market chef Monica Pope runs along with the Breakfast Klub and browse with mimosa in hand, or dabble in her funky ratafias — Texas wine and vodka infused with seasonal fruit.
Hearsay — The ambiance may be high-end but for Sunday mornings we opt for Hearsay's Mac and Four cheese with our bottomless bellinis. Other options are mimosas and fleur de lis and oh, yeah, the rest of the menu.
Tiny Boxwood's — Less a spot for weekend recovery than face time, Tiny Boxwoods, tucked away in Thompson & Hanson nursery, is the primo patio spot to get your money's worth among the greenery.
Cyclone Anaya's — The trendiest of Tex-Mex offers bottomless mimosas and poinsettias and a mean migas con fajita. Locations are in Midtown at 309 Gray St., 1710 Durham, CityCentre and at the corner of Woodway and Augusta.
