Montrose diners, get ready for great news: Not only is the newest location of B.B. Lemon now open, it's serving brunch and its famous Lemon Hour.
Brunch aficionados can now indulge in blue crab beignets, banana pudding French toast, and crawfish hash, in addition to the famous Texas wagyu beef cheeseburgers and oysters on the half shell.
Available Saturday and Sunday, brunch also features cocktails, such as the traditional Bloody Mary (with a house-made mix and seasoned salt) and mimosas by the glass or carafe with your choice of orange, blood orange, or grapefruit. There are also classics such as the Corpse Reviver and Blushing Italian (you can see the full menu here).
The signature Lemon Hour happy hour is on, too, every Monday through Friday from 3-6 pm. During those magic hours you can get $8 craft cocktails, $4 beers, and $2 off wines by the glass.
A hefty smattering of snacks are specially priced, including pistachio-crusted fried shrimp with mixed greens ($8), Frito pie with house-made beer cheese ($6), root beer-braised pulled pork sliders with slaw ($7), crispy cauliflower with chili tahini sauce ($6), Texas wagyu hot dogs ($6), chicken fried pickle spears ($5), lemon chicken salad wrap ($6), and deviled eggs ($5).
B.B. Lemon Montrose opened in early July in the former Pax Americana space at 4319 Montrose, and has the same vibe as its sister restaurant on Washington Avenue.
Green plaid wallpaper, checked tablecloths, and, of course, a winged lemon neon sign decorate the eatery, which can seat approximately 75 in the main dining room, 30 in a private dining room, 11 at the bar (an antique that has been untouched by the renovations), and 60 on the patio.
No matter where you sit, the view of your plate is bound to be delicious.
