Here are some new brunches for your weekend pleasure: ~ST. VINCENT~ is now serving brunch on Saturdays from 12pm-3pm. The menu includes a smørrebrød selection, a couple of egg dishes such as scrapple, and lavender bread pudding; take a peek right here. They’ll also be pouring coffee from Bicycle Coffee Co. and eventually may be adding a few lighter brunch cocktails. Of course, their exceptional beer and wine selection will also be available. Look for Sunday service to be added soon.

~HI LO~ has started serving brunch on Sundays from 11am-2:30pm. Chef Robin Song’s menu includes hearty, Southern-inflected items like chicken fried steak and eggs (don’t forget your Lipitor) and shrimp and grits with andouille sausage, along with some lighter choices like house-smoked salmon and fruit with yogurt. Am curious about the bacon that is house-smoked, braised, and grilled. They’ve got a selection of brunch cocktails going, along with some “hair of the dog” shot specials for $7.
