A To-Die for Upstairs Brunch on the Balcony

From chicken & waffles to shrimp tacos, Upstairs has an amazing selection of foods for you to choose from, and some pretty amazing Bloody Mary's too! A few weeks ago I was invited to a blogger preview hosted by the restaurant to give my feed back on the dishes on the menu of this now open brunch spot in Rice village right here in Houston. 

First of all the place is gorgeous, and the outside patio is just the way I would want to sip on a mimosa literally everyday! Their selection of mimosa's is pretty impeccable to and made with freshly juiced fruits. The bartender mentioned that the fresh fruit just does a better job at delivering the experience of the drink which I totally supported. 

The menu did what every menu does to me when I'm starving, overwhelmed me with such a big selection of yummy sounding foods. In the end I went with a totally safe and non-seafood choice, since it just isn't my thing, a good ol' burger. Since it was brunch it was topped with an over easy egg. My only comment is that all the other foods, and appetizers had an amazing spice to them and I was almost disappointed that the burger didn't carry on that theme. 

I have to admit I was a little jealous of everyone that ordered the chicken & waffles because they looked sooo good.
