While everyone is going bonkers and waiting in line at Daily Driver for bagels, have you ever had chef Andrew McCormack’s bagels at his pop-up brunch on Feastly, Early to Rise? They’re about as outstanding as his eggs Benedict (and his housemade English muffins). And now, Eater has noted that he has landed a permanent location in the former The Fine Mousse on Nob Hill (he has partnered with TFM’s Ben Rogers—who still had the lease—on this project). You can check out the prix-fixe brunch service Sat-Sun which can be pre-booked (nope, no lines for you) and is served at 11am ($25) or 1pm ($38). Bottomless low-ABV Italian greyhounds, just $15. Pics here. Look for expanded hours and more soon. 1098 Jackson St. at Taylor.

The recently opened ~THE BRIXTON ON 2ND~ is now serving brunch, starting at 11am on Saturdays and Sundays, featuring wagyu steak and eggs (Mishima Reserve wagyu flat-iron steak, eggs any style, with maitre d’ butter home fries) for $28 if you feel like a having a baller breakfast. Southern fried chicken Benedict with curry coconut waffle, maple syrup, and tasso-spiced béarnaise is $18. Check out the menu here. They also launched a happy hour (4pm-7pm) with dishes for $6-8, including a fried chicken sandwich with sambal oelek mayo and sesame cabbage; house cocktails are only $10, draft beers are $5, and wine by the glass are $8. 701 2nd St. at Townsend.
