What is brunch happy hour? Half off of brunch plates! Crazy, right? Crazy, awesome!
Since I'm a reasonable person, I decided to get two plates because each plate was half off. You would've too, had you seen their menu.
I wanted just about everything on there but narrowed it down to the Cajun steak and grits because (1) I love steak (2) I love poached eggs (3) Most importantly, I love spicy food and this dish came with homemade chili oil atop the grits.
I also got the waffle because (1) I love waffles and do not have a waffle maker at home (2) It came with a side of bacon (which I got to take home to the hubby and I'm sure I scored some major brownie points with him) (3) The server said the dish presentation was pretty (which it was)!
To be honest, I don't love Bloody Marys but ordered one anyway with brunch because (1) seems like the right brunch cocktail to order (2) I love all of the pickled stuff that comes with it (3) This one was made with whiskey instead of vodka.
So, how was the food? Spec-freaking-tacular! Everything tasted great so I'll comment on the highlights: whipped cream on the waffle was to die for. I almost asked for a bowl of it. The grits had great flavor and consistency and the chili oil was definitely a winner.
I also tried a bite of the chicken & waffle - will be ordering that the next time I'm back. How can you resist fried chicken on top of a fresh waffle, dipped in syrup? I can't, and next time I'm not sure I'd be content with only a bite.
