You can now get weekend brunch (and delicious cocktails, of course) at ~TROU NORMAND~. They’re serving it on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 2pm, with dishes like coppa, soft-boiled egg, asparagus, and mizuna ($12) and brown rice porridge with duck confit and poached egg ($15). The full charcuterie menu is also available, and seating on their glass-enclosed back patio is sure to be pleasant.
~HRD COFFEE SHOP~ in SoMa has expanded their hours to include dinner service on weekdays. They’ll now be open for dinner five nights a week, serving their Korean-inspired cuisine. In addition, chef David Yeung is offering two weekly dinner specials; this week it’s a short rib bibimbap and loco moco. They have also applied for a beer and wine license, which should be coming soon. Hours are now Mon-Fri 10am-4pm, 5pm-8:30pm, Sat 10am-4pm (closed for dinner), closed Sun. 521A 3rd St. at Taber, 415-543-2355.
