I love a good brunch like any other foodie, so I decided to try a new place located in Sugarland, BLU Restaurant. It doesn’t hurt that they offer a complimentary drink with Sunday brunch! We got there exactly when it opened at 11:00am and it seemed like the employees were dragging to get the place still set up, so we did have to wait a bit for a server to come over and take our order, however when our waiter did come I opted with a Mimosa and my mom ordered the Cucumber Lemonade. I am not a pulp girl and my mimosa had a lot of pulp in it however I still enjoyed it!
For brunch I ordered the CRAB CAKE SLIDERS (three mini crispy crab cake, avocado, lettuce, tomato, chipotle aioli & crispy fries) and my mom ordered the FRENCH TOAST (brioche, banana n’ sugar walnut cinnamon, whipped butter). Again it was a bit of a wait for our food and not sure why when there was hardly anyone there yet but when the food did come out we enjoyed our meal. Not the best crab cakes I have tasted and trust me I have tasted a lot, but I was so famished by the time the food arrived I ate almost all of it.
Another fun note to mention is they have a live jazz band during brunch playing outside on the patio (a saxophone and keyboard player). It was fun and entertaining because my son was trying to be a third member of the band and they gave him a cool toy to play with as well. Very funny duo and great live entertainment!
Would I come back to BLU for brunch? Probably not. I was not that impressed with the service or food, however I would like to check out the lounge on the weekends and enjoy some of their specialty cocktails.
