~PICNIC ON THIRD~ has been doing a booming lunch business since opening nine months ago and are now adding Sunday brunch to their repertoire. The brunch menu offers seasonal plates that will rotate frequently, including a chile-braised pork with polenta, collard greens, and poached eggs, and multigrain pancakes with spiced fruit and cultured butter. The brunch menu is right here (along with pictures), and you’ll also find smaller items like banana hazelnut bread and a daily soup. They are serving Contraband coffee, as well as Jittery John’s cold brew on nitro.

There’s also a great Gilt deal right now that gets you brunch for two at Picnic on Third for $25 (upgrade to mimosas for $38). When you invite a friend and sign up, you’ll get $25 off your first deal, which means free brunch! Just be sure to use this link and get the deal right here. Brunch hours are Sunday 10am-2pm, Saturday may be coming soon. 493 3rd St. at Bryant, 415-590-7121.
