Well this seems like the perfect place for brunch: ASTER in the Mission just turned one, and has decided to launch weekend brunch (the first day was this past Sunday). Chef-owner Brett Cooper’s delicious-sounding menu can be viewed here, and low-ABV cocktails will be available too. Hours are Sat-Sun 10:30am-2pm. If you procrastinated on Mother’s Day brunch reservations, here’s one idea… 1001 Guerrero St at 22nd St., 415-875-9810.
And then there’s lunch! WESBURGER N’ MORE has launched lunch, running daily 11:30am-3pm. You can get his badass burgers, sandwiches, fried chicken, and salads (the turkey club salad sounds righteous), but here’s the bonus round: free tots! Yup, the man loves his tots, so they will be free for all guests with each order during lunch service. 2240 Mission St. at 18th St.
Many of us remember late nights at SAM WO, and that will be happening once again in their new location. Hours have expanded to Wed-Sat 11am-4pm and 6pm-12am, Sun until 5pm, Mon until 4pm, and Tue closed. Starting May 20th, the real late nights will begin, with hours until 3am Fri-Sat. Also: look for their restored neon sign to be lit up—they got permission to transfer it from the original location. [Via Hoodline.] 713 Clay St. at Kearny, 415-989-8898.
