The Sam Houston Hotel in Texas
*17 takes its name from days gone by, when Houston was a city where seventeen railroads met the sea. Its three-course Sunday brunch is deceptively simple. Start with house-cured salmon on a toasted bagel or rock shrimp tacos spiced with cucumber salsa. Second courses include a croque madame (a variant of croque monsieur) and duck hash over poached eggs topped with black truffle hollandaise. Dessert poses a happy dilemma: your choice of crème caramel, sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice cream or banana ice box pie with hot fudge.
