Say, did you hear? That uber cool new restaurant, Hearsay on The Strand, is participating in the 8th annual Galveston Restaurant Week. And they ain’t just tippin’ their toes in the water, kids. They’re swan diving head first with a double twist into the deep end.
Historic character. Innovative cuisine. Legendary experience. To walk through the doors of Hearsay on the Strand is to be transported to an undefined era in history. Sip specialty craft cocktails and savor inspired renditions of contemporary American dishes as you embark on a journey through time where past and present collide. At Hearsay, they’re half old-world revival, half culinary crusaders, creating a dining experience that is simply chic antique.
Located in the James Fadden Building near the corner of 24th and Strand, Hearsay on The Strand is the third location in the Houston area. As a nod to the building’s history wholesaling wine and liquor, Hearsay on The Strand has unique, handcrafted cocktails that are perfect to enjoy when you need a retreat from the Island’s heat. And the incredible THREE MENUS they’re including for Galveston Restaurant Week includes both Hearsay staples and dishes created for their local patrons.
Let’s jump right in with Brunch. For just $15? You’ll begin with a first course choice of signature Roasted Poblano Soup with questo fresco or garden-fresh Hearsay Salad. Entree choices include Avocado & Fried Egg Toast with brioche, two fried eggs, arugula salad, and fruit; Short Rib Eggs Benedict with potato hash; the southern fried Chicken & Waffle; The Strand Burger with Angust beef, Applewood smoked bacon, cheddar, caramelized onion & jalapenos, fried egg, onion crisps, and guacamole (dying here), or the Sliced NY Strip with chimichurri, green beans, and poblano mashed potatoes.
Of course, maybe the $15 Lunch is more your style. After finishing a cup of Roasted Poblano Soup or the crisp Hearsay Salad, you’ll savor entrees ranging from the Slow Roasted Prime Rib French Dip with truffle rosemary fries; the Cajun Fried Shrinp Salad; the Seared Cajun Chicken Pappardelle with artichokes, tomatoes, and mushrooms; the world-famous Strand Burger (see above for THAT description that still has our heads swimming); the Pan Seared Salmon with sauteed garlic spinach and poblano mashed potatoes, or the Sliced NY Strip with green beans and potatoes.
And then there’s the Dinner menu, which puts the “chic” in “chic antique.” For $29 bucks, enjoy a first course of Roasted Poblano Soup, Hearsay Salad, or Cheesesteak Egg Rolls with sweet chili sauce and spicy mustard. Next? Choose your entree of Pan Seared Fresh Blackened Texas Redfish with bacon, jalapenio; & crab meat citrus sauce; the Cajun Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and white cheddar and served with cheddar grits with a Cajun lobster sauce; the Rosemary Braised Lamb Shank with cilantro rice, braised carrots and natural au jus; a Baked Stuffed Chicken Breast stuffed with spinach with sundried tomatoes, mushroom & mozzarella, and broccolini; or the Angus 12oz. Ribeye with Cajun Shrimp, served with herbed butter, smoked tricolor cauliflower, and broccolini. Top it all off with a dessert choice of Bread Pudding a la mode, Cheesecake, or Sorbet.
