Benjy’s menu offers an eclectic array of Southern comfort and fresh, pan-Asian cuisine. The expansive restaurant has a lively atmosphere, and Chef Mike Potowski keeps the place packed. Potowski works magic with proteins and produce alike; Quinoa Risotto with Farro, Oyster Mushrooms, Winter Squash, and Vadouvan Pumpkin Seeds is a must-try for vegetarians, but it could easily tempt the most entrenched carnivore. Pastry Chef Armando Ramirez admirably balances classic comfort with innovation, melding savory flavors, such as bourbon, bacon, and beer, into cult favorites like the Seven-layer Banana Cake.

Recommended Dishes:
  • House-cured Red Snapper Hamachi, Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit, and Spicy Wasabi Greens
  • Quinoa Risotto, Farro, Oyster Mushrooms, Winter Squash, and Vadouvan Pumpkin Seeds
  • Seven-layer Banana Cake, Cream Cheese Icing, House-made Bourbon Walnut Ice Cream, and Caramelized Banana Flambée with Amaretto
