When planning a brunch with one of the hottest chefs in Houston right now it’s no wonder we wanted to make this all about his vision. The Aces of Taste family was so fortunate to work with Chef Justin Turner of Bernie’s Burger Bus to collaborate on our second brunch. When I first met Chef Turner it was at a Platformit event last December, I knew we had to lock him up for a date. Months went by but we never lost our interest to work with him. Jump to this past Saturday and the wait was well worth it. Chef Turner impressed more than 60 dinners to a spectacular five-course brunch themed around the Beastie Boys. Diners enjoyed tuna crudo, french toast with foie gras, house made gravlax, pork belly and finished it off with a semifreddo. Cocktails were provided from Cointreau and rounding up the mood were sounds by DJ Charlee Brown. Overall this was another successfully executed brunch and I can’t wait for next month’s dinner. Cheers!
