Tricky Fish has truly brought a little taste of New Orleans to Richardson at CityLine. I've already fallen in love with their etouffee and Mac and cheese, so I went in with stretchy pants (well, actually a loose-fitting dress, because have you met me?) at the ready to try out their new brunch menu.
To begin your Saturday or Sunday brunch adventure at Tricky Fish, start with one of their Bloody Marys (with a house-made mix). Like it spicy? Just ask! There's even a boiled shrimp, crispy pork rind, and olive right there in case you're hangry and can't wait for the real deal.
You also might enjoy a traditional Mimosa, Michelada, or the Irish Iced Coffee with your brunch.
The brunch menu is short, sweet, and to the point... in fact, not tricky at all. :)
Offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-2pm, the prices are right and the tastes are even better.
We split two entrees. First, the Fried Shrimp and Oyster Grits. We're talking fried gulf oysters and fried shrimp atop creamy cheddar, corn, and bacon grits. All drizzled with a really tasty Shiner Bock BBQ sauce and crowned with a fried egg. Definitely the kind of signature dish I'll be returning for.
The other savory brunch entree we sampled was the NOLA Benedict. Like I said, I can never say "no" to NOLA. And that was the correct decision in this instance. The NOLA Benedict = biscuits topped with Andouille sausage, peppers, and onions. And poached eggs with creole mustard Hollandaise. SO fantastic. 10/10 will be back for more. They also offer a similar sounding Andouille Hash and Eggs (think the NOLA Benedict plus spinach and without the biscuits, but featuring a sauce I'm intrigued by: a Roasted Green Chile Hollandaise).
There's also a Couples' Brunch, priced well at $36, which includes 2 mimosas, 2 entrees, and a special shared dessert I'm about to mention (stay tuned). Sounds like a perfect day date to me!
There are Praline Pancakes on the menu for you Sweet Tooth friends out there, plus one last sugary brunch dish that will leave you on just the right note...
I'm just gonna leave you with this last one. Bananas. Foster. Monkey Bread.
Now. Pick up your spoon, wash it, and run to Tricky Fish this weekend for brunch. They'll provide the spoons.
