~BDK~ in Union Square is now open for weekend brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 2pm. The menu is classic American, with French toast, pancakes, eggs Benedict, omelets, and fried chicken with coleslaw and biscuits. There are also some fun twists on the basics, like ham and Brie “pop tarts.” Check out the full menu here. The bar opens at 10am, and there is a selection of brunch cocktails too. 501 Geary St. at Taylor, 415-292-0101.

From now until August 31st you can check out a new Ling Ling menu at the bar at ~HAKKASAN~. What’s that, you ask? Well, it’s basically a happy hour menu celebrating the restaurant group’s newest property on Mykonos, called Ling Ling. You can only get it at the bar from 5pm to 6pm daily, but it’s a pretty sweet deal: for $45 per person you choose between two menus, meat and seafood, or fish and seafood.

The meat and seafood menu includes the hopper-approved crispy duck salad with pomegranate, smoked short rib, stir-fry scallop with XO sauce, and spicy prawn with lily bulb and almond. On the fish and seafood menu, you’ll find crispy pumpkin salad with mountain yam, grilled sea bass with Chinese honey, steamed Chinese chive dumpling, and stir-fry asparagus with lotus root. Both menus include a selection of macarons and a sample of the Ling Ling Collins, a new signature cocktail that will be served in the Mykonos location.
