HOUSTON – The new brunch at Maggiano's Little Italy includes foods like eggs Benedict and lemon ricotta pancakes. They are next level delicious.

The kitchen at the brand-new Memorial City Maggiano's location is run by French born, Cordon Bleu trained Chef Philippe Verain.

He has been a crucial piece of Maggiano's culinary puzzle for several years. He has worked in a few American cities for the company. He is a man who clearly loves his job and he has been in Texas so long that he speaks with a "French twang."
