With weekend temperatures forecasted to be a pleasant 70-degrees, this Sunday's brunch should most certainly be eaten al fresco, or more specifically, in Backstreet Cafe's courtyard. This Houston classic turned 30 last month and there's no better way to celebrate than with a mimosa and a plate of shrimp and grits. Of course there's also Gulf Coast beignets made with shrimp, crab, andouille sausage, corn and served with a roasted red pepper remoulade, or the ridiculously rich brioche French toast stuffed with bananas and caramel sauce. Top off your Sunday by taking home a copy of Backstreet Kitchen - Seasonal Recipes From Our Neighborhood Cafe, which was published in honor of the restaurant's third decade in business.
