Montrose Tex-Mex Fave Fires Up Al Fresco Brunch

IT'S AL FRESCO brunch season in Houston, and Candente has rolled out a new menu for the occasion. Boasting a large buzzy patio — with lots of fans! — the Montrose Tex-Mex charmer is known for its live-fire cooking technique that gives food a signature Mesquite-grilled flavor.

The new brunch menu offers twists to some of Candente’s most popular dishes. The enchiladas con huevos are familiar cheesy goodness — but topped with two over-easy eggs. But the real showstopper is the breakfast burrito: It’s stuffed with meat, beans, cheese and covered in queso (because why not?) And no Tex-Mex brunch menu would be complete without chilaquiles or tamales! The tamales are topped with chili and fried eggs for good measure.

Pair the mouthwatering meal with one of the new brunch cocktails like the jalapeno-laced Bloody Mary, or one of Candente’s new margaritas of the month. April’s flavor is the patio-friendly spicy watermelon marg made with watermelon liquor and jalapeno.

Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-2pm.

Ancient French Wellness Cures Reimagined at Houston’s Escape Spa: The Power of Vichy

Serial entrepreneur and spa visionary LeBrina Jackson

NESTLED IN THE heart of France, the town of Vichy holds a rich history in the world of wellness and hydrotherapy. Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.
