Re-Visit for a 2nd Review: Liberty Kitchen's Sunday Brunch

Awkward Brunch for Schmosby
(c) Viacom, CBS, used under fair use
Ah... Sunday Brunch!  Ted Mosby of "How I Met Your Mother" loves it.  And what's not to love?  Breakfast or lunch food!  Even booze if you choose (Mimosas, Bloody Marys or Caesars!  W00t!)  Not to mention that there is a certain art to it.  And Liberty Kitchen in the Heights has developed their artistic skills quite well, if I do say so--and readers, you all know I have no shortage of words!  So as Fall blew into Houston and made women pull out their boots, I got a party together and we hit the Heights in search of a good, fresh, inspired brunch menu at Liberty Kitchen!

Per their website:
 The Kitchen is committed to fresh, quality local products with fish being delivered daily from a local boat. We have one of the few oyster bars in town to enjoy selections from the East, West and Gulf coasts. The Kitchen offers several choices on our charcoal- and applewood-burning grill including fish, steaks, spare ribs, chicken and burgers. We have a little bit of everything to please every palate.
This was my experience back when I tried their Big Messy Tillamook Rodeo Clown Burger  and now I can say the same experience is true for their wonderful brunch.  Our party decided on a couple of cups of coffee and lemonade, the Vanilla-Cinnamon Milk Bread French toast, the American Liberty Breakfast, the kid's Mini-cheeseburger meal and The Early Gorilla Breakfast Sandwich.  All in all this was a brunch that sat with us quite well and was thoroughly enjoyable.

The Vanilla-Cinnamon Milk Bread French Toast was full of egg flavour, was chewy, fully satisfying and had nice vanilla and cinnamon taste.  It was served with a light, not too sweet style Whipped cream, real maple syrup and fresh local berries.  The young lady who ordered it gobbled it up with glee and there were no leftovers.  I was lucky I got one bite to comment on!

The other lady in our party ordered the American Liberty Breakfast--bacon, sausage, 2 eggs, greens and toast.  Very meaty and tasty.  No complaints here at all!!!  I ordered the Early Gorilla Breakfast sandwich--seasoned ground beef patty, fried egg, cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickle, avocado and peppers, all on a toasted English muffin, served with fruit.  This was downright yummy, a satisfying brunch in a burger--magnificent!  My son enjoyed a kids plate--served on a reclaimed cafeteria tray--2 slider burgers with fruit and french fries spun in rosemary and olive oil.  He gobbled up everything on the tray and was happy they had something that fit his tastes as well.

The Kitchen was humming and we could see the fire flying up the broiler as the staff prepared and plated meals with aplomb.  I'd been to Liberty Kitchen during lunch, but never for Sunday Brunch.  After our party had enjoyed our meal, we all agreed this would be a regular rotation when we do Sunday Brunch, a la Ted Mosby, as my son Jason would say.
