Mike and I spent a beautiful, sunny – Sunday morning experiencing a new restaurant in Historic Downtown Bryan, Texas. Housed inside the rustic and recently restored Ice House on Main, Ronin Restaurant brings new life to the 1912 building.
For many years, Chef Brian Light and his wife Amanda have connected our community through local food production and provided a venue where guests can enjoy the traditions of a simpler life at Ronin Farms. The outdoor event venue under the Texas sky will make you fall in love with the Farm to Table concept. Ronin has now created a second space where our community can experience this same concept in their new location in Historic Downtown Bryan.
Guests at the Ronin Restaurant can choose from a variety of seating, including outdoor tables with a view of Historic Downtown Bryan, a indoor community style table or simply a seat at the bar.
The menu selection was carefully crafted, providing us with the feeling that we were out on the farm and even included recommendations of drink pairings for each menu item.
Mike selected the Texas Wagyu Chicken Fried Steak and Farm Egg with Cream Gravy and Roasted Sweet Potato. Although I helped Mike finish most of his delicious Wagyu Chicken Fried Steak, I went with a sweeter selection for my entree- the Cinnamon Pecan French Toast with Spiced Apple Compote and Spiced Caramel – and it was as delightful as the name.
Although the food and venue were amazing, please note that the pricing for us would be for special occasions only and not a weekly stop. Based on your budget, I would recommend reviewing the menu pricing before dining. I definitely see this venue as the perfect spot to host a bridal brunch, baby shower or even a birthday celebration with your closest girlfriends.
The Ronin Restaurant also has seasonal hours, so be sure to check their website for the most up to date hours. If you are dining this Winter, the hours for Ronin Restaurant are:
