Brunch at Hugo’s is like no other! Make your reservation now, or cook up one of their brunchtime classics at home: Chilaquiles with Green Tomatillo Sauce. The homemade sauce packs so much spicy, herbaceous flavor, but is surprisingly easy to whip up. Also, don’t miss their lunch or dinner, they wow their diners with dishes like a whole Huachinango a la Veracruzana.

This all-day breakfast spot kicks up their Shrimp and Grits with a generous amount of cheese and spicy jalapeño. This savory dish is a fan favorite at the restaurant and now you can make it at home without the wait! Or, try your hand at making your own homemade chorizo, simply saute the meat until cooked through. Pour in some beaten and seasoned eggs, scramble and you’re good to go! This goes great with a variety of sides like refried beans, hash browns, country potatoes or warm tortillas.
We love lunch and dinner at Relish, but you do not want to miss their Saturday brunch! The Chicken and Waffles is a crowd favorite. The insanely-juicy chicken is marinated for 48 hours before being deep-fried to a golden crisp! For something lighter and on the sweeter side, make their granola at home and pair it with fresh fruit and yogurt. It’s perfect for a make-ahead breakfast!
