Green Eggs and Glam


Blackbird and Henry
3016 Guadalupe St.

You've called in "sick" to book club, HOA meetings and a visit to the gyno. But miss Sunday brunch? Never.

For your next weekend foodie foray, hit Blackbird and Henry. The cozy neighborhood restaurant, headed up by chef Mark Schmidt of beloved Cafe 909 in Marble Falls, is serving up delicious weekend delights to draw you right out of your hangover. A raw bar with oysters on the half-shell will tide you over until the smoked salmon and egg bruschetta or the comfort food to end all comfort foods - lamb leg grilled cheese on sourdough - hits the table. With a cocktail list that takes you from Bloody Marys to a thyme-infused gin cocktail dubbed the Strawberry Letter, you'll be sitting pretty and satiated. 

When buttermilk biscuits are involved, there's no bailing.
