Everyone that lives here in Boerne knows the town is rich in history. One big part of that history is Ye Kendall Inn. Established in 1859, it started out as a homestead with extra rooms that the owners rented out to horsemen and stagecoach travelers. Through the years (and many owners), the inn has been added to, modernized, and revived… being able to give its guests a homey but vintage experience… and being able to accommodate both large and small groups.
One big addition to the inn (that came with quite a bit of buzz last year) is Chef Mark Bohanan’s newest restaurant, Peggy’s on the Green (a South-inspired, all-American eatery). And while I admit, it did take me a while to get over there… I found it bright, welcoming, homey, and delicious… and wondered why it took me so long to try!
Just a few weeks ago, a best friend (Allison) and I enjoyed our first lunch at Peggy’s. A beautiful day, we sat outside on the porch. She had the pimento cheese burger. I got the citrus fruit salad. And we shared an order of onion rings. SO delicious… that when I was invited back, I jumped at the chance!
This time I made a stop at the bar for a Kendall cocktail (a light, refreshing, fruity mix of vodka, Pimm’s No. 1, lime, orange, strawberry, and cucumber), as I waited for Allison to meet up with me again.
And then we moved onto lunch in the dining room. Wanting to try completely different items, I got the prime rib sandwich (delicious, thinly-sliced prime rib with Texas white bbq sauce on a brioche bun) and green goddess potato salad. She got the salisbury steak (Akaushi beef sauteed in a red wine reduction) with potatoes, green beans, and a buttermilk biscuit.
And then we added on dessert with a slice of chess pie (a custard-y pie with a rich caramel sauce, whipped cream, fresh fruit, and mint).
Of course, there are still several items on the lunch menu that I want to try. I heard brunch is fabulous. And the dinner menu looks divine. So I will definitely be back!
