This is definitely a brunching town, so here are a few more to add to your hit list. First, ~TOWN HALL~ is now serving a delicious-sounding weekend brunch, Sat-Sun 10:30am-2:30pm. Menu items include eggs Benedict ($15) on buttermilk biscuits, La Quercia speck ham, sautéed Swiss chard, chive hollandaise; chicken tasso hash ($14) with garnet yams, Yukon potato, melted onions, peppers, two poached eggs, pimento hollandaise; huevos rancheros ($15); Town Hall purgatory ($15) with brown rice-stuffed poblano chile, two fried eggs, bacon crumble, and spicy tomato sauce; and Southern Comfort ($16) with a sunny-side up egg, grilled pork belly, red pepper jelly, stone ground grits, ham hock collard greens, and bacon gravy. There is also cornflake-crusted brioche French toast ($12), chicken and waffles ($16), and steak frites ($19). Yeah, it looks amazing. Check out the entire menu here. Brunch cocktails include a bloody Mary, and the Hook, Line & Sinker (Negro Modelo, lime juice, Tabasco, Old Bay sea salt rim, house bloody Mary mix). Sign me up.

Starting Friday March 16th, ~DON PISTO’S~ in North Beach is going to be offering weekday brunch, Tue-Fri 11am-3pm, in addition to their usual weekend brunch. Yup, perfect for you industry or hooky-playing types. Look for a five-item brunch menu with dishes like huevos rancheros, chorizo and poached eggs, and brioche French toast, plus some tacos (I love the al pastor). And for those of you keen to take the entire day off, there’s also the option of bottomless “agua fresca” mimosas, sangria, and wine-based margaritas. On Sundays, Pisto’s is going to offer brunch all day, from 10am-10pm, with some dinner items later in the day (the bottomless beverage action ends at 3pm, however). The new Sunday hours kick off Sunday March 18th, the day after St. Patrick’s Day, how convenient.

Many folks will be happy to know ~OUTERLANDS~ has extended their weekend hours, now open Sat 10am-3pm for lunch and Sun 10am-3pm for brunch!
