Cannon + Belle, has recently released new menus developed by Chef Yesica Arredondo. The new items are available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, keeping the focus on regional offerings and flavors accented by Chef Yesi’s creative flair.
The new breakfast menu includes classics with a kick such as Chicken and Biscuits, fried chicken and scratch biscuit with creole mustard gravy; Texas Brisket Hash; and Farm Eggs and Ham Pizza with shaved ham, fried egg, gruyère, tomato, asparagus and a truffle-parmesan cream. Chef Yesi made a few updates to previous dishes like the Crab Benny with jumbo lump crab, poached farm egg and smoked cayenne Hollandaise and the Avocado Toast of sourdough, smashed avocado, radish, tomato and jalapeño.
At lunch, The Cannon Burger now has a hot sauce mayonnaise, caramelized onion, manchego cheese and Texas greens on Belle’s special grind on a pretzel bun.

At dinner, new standouts in the Share Plates section include Honey and Black Garlic Wings; Mac and Cheese with burnt brisket ends, and Cornbread and Bacon Butter. New entrees that are certain to become classics include Pork Chop served with turnip greens, cherry-miso mostarda and herb ricotta mash; Ancho Chili Espresso Rubbed Ribeye; and Seared Scallops with brown butter and sunchoke purée, Texas mushrooms, string beans and baby tomatoes.
Last but never least, Chef Yesi makes sweet endings even sweeter with a Warm Cream Cheese Brownie served with a side of vanilla ice cream and hot fudge; Seasonal Fruit Crisp; Lemon Cake of cornmeal, seasonal sorbet and local honey; and Salted Chocolate Stack, a four-layer chocolate cake drizzled with brown butter and salted caramel.
