A Double-Header of Solid New Brunch Options

For Sunday Mornings Fueled by Prosciutto-Truffle Benedicts and Bloodys

By Ilana Dadras ·

Here, now, a couple of solid new brunches to have on your radar...

For mimosas on the LES and the fluffiest pancakes you've ever seen, but actually:

There's Brigitte, the trendy French-Brazilian restaurant down on Canal. Start with a basket of croissants, banana bread and pain au chocolat, because (not-surprisingly) they do French pastries really well. Then, there's dill-cured salmon with blinis and cucumber salad; chorizo with yucca fries and eggs; pancakes with banana and spicy walnuts...

Brigitte, 37 Canal St (between Ludlow and Essex), 646-649-3378, see the menu

For Prosciutto-Truffle Benedicts and Bloodys in Fort Greene...

You head to Evelina, that attractive Mediterranean date spot with a Daniel and Boulud Sud vet-chef in the kitchen. The move here: spicy Bloody Marys, then braised short rib with parmesan grits; eggs benedict with prosciutto di Parma, burrata and truffle hollandaise; and the apple butter-topped brioche French toast to share. 

Evelina, 211 Dekalb Ave (between Adelphi and Clemont), 929-298-0209, see the menu
