In Dallas, brunch is a dining staple. Weekend brunch is more than just a meal with mimosas, it’s a social event and a chance to try some of the best restaurants in the city like Meddlesome Moth. Located in the Design District, this gastropub is known for its foodie-friendly small plates, immaculate beer list, and their incredible brunch menu. On the weekend, they feature the traditional staples of eggs benedict and omelets, as well as creative brunch masterpieces.

We were seated on the beautiful outdoor patio, which is thankfully enclosed and air conditioned, protecting diners from the summer Texas heat. After a Blood Orange Mimosa, we ordered two of their best selling dishes, the Mother and Child Reunion and The Doughnut Sandwich.

The Mother and Child Reunion is a plate that tickles all the Southern sweet spots, with crispy fried chicken, grits, and jalapeño gravy, topped with a perfectly poached egg. The spicy gravy adds a delicious and dynamic punch to the tender fried chicken breast and creamy grits, pushing this dish to the top of my list of favorites.

You won't regret this combination of crispy fried chicken, poached egg, grits, and jalapeno gravy. 

For those with a sweet tooth, there are plenty of options to satisfy your craving. Morning Buns, Bacon Waffles, and a French Toast Sandwich will definitely hit the sweet spot. If you’re lucky, you may have an opportunity to taste their weekend special: Housemade Yeast Doughnut Sandwiches. Prepare yourself -- this is not your average doughnut. On our visit, the special was housemade sausage, creamy cheese, and eggs sandwiched between a whiskey maple doughnut, covered in a generous sprinkle of powered sugar. It was a show stopper!

A Moth special: Whiskey Maple Doughnut Sandwich. Heaven on a plate! 

With gourmet drip coffee, fresh-squeezed mimosas, and comfort food galore, Meddlesome Moth should be added to your weekend plans immediately. You won't want to start or end your weekend any other way.
