Hearsay Gastro Lounge

Two Houston area restaurants ticked off the bucket list in as many days. What's wrong with me? My second stop was at Hearsay Gastro Lounge for lunch after my segment on Great Day Houston. I made a reservation for 12:15, and I'm glad I did. Otherwise, we would have had an extended wait. The ambiance of this place is awesome with a slightly glamorous prohibition-esque feel. 

Enough about ambiance; let's talk food. We ordered a couple of appetizers--bacon & chive deviled eggs and smoked salmon crostini. The deviled eggs had hints of dill and they were not overly seasoned. The salmon crostini were also flavored well and the pickled onion added a sweet/spicy element. 

My Dad ordered the beet salad. Now, I think beets taste like dirt, so I can't say this tasted good, but he liked it and actually enjoyed the salad more than the burger. 

My husband also ordered a burger with a side of Mac and Cheese. 

Both the pops and the hubs didn't rave about the burger. It was good, but not anything unique. There are other, more exciting dishes to order such as my Mom's seared ahi tuna with asparagus and mushroom risotto. 

However, there was another burger on the menu that sounded like it would be worth ordering. I was really hoping someone at the table would have gotten it so I could take a picture. It's called The Byrd. It has cheddar, mozzarella, avocado, bacon, jalapeƱos, onion, and Mac and Cheese. Gluttonous, yes, but it sounds delicious. 

Since I'm being all healthy, I decided on the vodka cured salmon salad. It was served with a Southwest Deviled Egg that tasted just like the bacon & chive egg with a little added heat. 

We had excellent, attentive service and had an overall enjoyable lunch at Hearsay. If anyone's had that Byrd burger, let me know. I'd love to hear about it. Better yet, visit Hearsay (OpenTable reservation recommended), get that burger and get back with me with a review!

  1. The tuna definitely looks like a home run. Now let me ask you, is this review presenting the facts or just Hearsay? Hehe. :D

  2. Google, I swear I'm not a robot stop asking me for proof, I might look like a zombie tho, Oy vey!

  3. That google!

    And this review presented the facts, but the commentary on the tuna is hearsay because it was my Mom's dish!
