There are few things that scream "Best Valentine's Ever" more than dozens of hanging crystal chandeliers and all of your closest gal-pals meeting up for mimosas and brunch. And The Kitchen At The Dunlavy in Houston is a brunch spot that is certainly making all those dreams come true.
With more than 40 dazzling chandeliers, the Dunlavy is classy and sophisticated without being too boujee or uncomfortable.
The tall, glass windows that line the kitchen will make you feel like you're dining in a high-class jungle.
No worries about breaking the bank when visiting, however, since they have some decently priced brunch options that don't exceed your other favorite breakfast-lunch spots.
They even have an adorable outdoor patio seating area with more views of the park greenery and exhausted, sweaty runners.
The lifted restaurant overlooks the lake and the beautiful Buffalo Bayou park for all the best views, inside and out.
So you better invite your friend who has the newest iPhone. Your IG feed will thank you later.
They open bright and early at 7 a.m. and serve it all—traditional breakfast, salad, avocado toast, tacos, sandwiches, and pancakes.
They're also beloved for their full drink bar where you can get craft coffee, smoothies, and of course—mimosas.
The Dunlavy currently closes at 2 p.m. for private events. But after July, the Dunlavy will be extending their hours to serve their full menu all day long.
Before you go—be aware that parking is very limited, so you may have to valet or consider carpooling. Valet is a $5 fee.
It's about the be the most unforgettable Galentine's ever.
