Brunch is Back: The Flat serves up tasty dishes, refreshing drinks and DJs on deck

The Flat, a music venue and upscale, neighborhood lounge, opens a little bit early on Sundays to serve up brunch with a beat.

“"Everyone wants to do something on Sunday mornings,”" manager Jasmine Richardson. “"They just don't know what to do. At the Flat, it’s not just about having brunch – it’s about having great food, meeting your friends on a Sunday, having a fun time and also listening to good music.”"

Richardson said offering a simple menu made the most sense. There are three items to choose from. A Caprese-style waffle sandwich pairs two fried eggs, mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes, fresh basil with a Belgian waffle, home fries and the option of adding bacon. For gluten-free diners, migas are a popular choice – scrambled eggs melted with mozzarella cheese, topped with a fresh homemade pico de gallo.

"Since we are known for our pizzas, we do a breakfast pizza that is really delicious made with homemade tomato sauce, scrambled eggs, bacon, jalapenos and cheese,”" Richardson added.

The Flat serves up three different types of mimosas during brunch – mixing a high quality Prosecco with either peach and orange, strawberry and pineapple or St. Germain and pineapple juice. The signature Bloody Mary made with Dripping Spring’s vodka is also a popular drink of choice on Sundays.

Richardson encourages guests to spend their Sundays out on the Flat’s patio. “"It’'s a hidden gem in Houston,”" she said. “"We just built an awesome new outdoor bar. We have different benches and seating areas, and it’s a very comfortable space.”"

DJ Analog Blitz spins all vinyl from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jazz by the Thomas Helton Sessions is featured from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Square wave Sundays begins at 8 p.m. featuring host resident DJ Mishka and Eddie on the sax.

"“We have music from 1 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Sundays at the Flat, covering all different genres,”" Richardson said. “"It's a place where you can lounge – and it is a little bit of a party atmosphere because of the music.”"
