Weekend brunch at ~BAR TARTINE~ is changing a bit. Instead of the usual à la carte menu, chefs and owners Nick Balla and Cortney Burns are now offering a prix-fixe family-style menu, with more focus on their favorite way of cooking, which is how they cook for their friends and family. The new menu debuted on Saturday August 15th and will continue to accommodate vegetarian diners and others with dietary restrictions. The price will change depending on what is served, but will always be in the low- to mid-$30s. Take a look at a sample menu here. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays 11am-2pm.

Speaking of brunch, you can now get it at ~HUXLEY~ on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 2pm, starting Saturday August 29th. Their famous avocado toast is available, along with egg dishes like the pork leg with fried eggs, chickpeas, roasted peppers, tomatillo salsa, and cilantro yogurt, or a summer succotash omelet with chanterelles. Their brunch cocktails are also available, of course.

~BELGA~ has launched lunch, running Mon-Fri 11am-3pm. You can check out the menu here, which includes salads, a croque madame, roasted tomato soup and fried bread, and a hamburger and frites. And beer! 2000 Union St. at Buchanan, 415-872-7350.

We’re big fans of late-night dining over here, so it’s exciting to hear that ~HOG & ROCKS~ is now offering a late-night menu on Fridays and Saturdays from 11pm to 1am. A menu highlight is the sausage and beer pairing, which features a different housemade sausage paired with a selected beer for just $15. The special will change regularly, but right now it’s an all-pork sausage with zucchini pepper slaw and a Flying Dog IPA.
