TENDERLOIN— Good news SF brunch-lovers. Huxley is adding Saturday brunch as of tomorrow and is now open from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, as well as the regular dinner service from 5:30-10:30 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. This means now you won't have to wait until Sunday to feast on the baked eggs and avocado toast with sesame, sea urchin and seaweed, all of which you'll (naturally) wash down with a beermosa (Allagash white and OJ).
MID-MARKET— Mid-market spot Dirty Water is also officially launching brunch this weekend after playing around with menu items for the last couple of weeks. Anyone with a sweet tooth will be excited for the Banana French Toast with huckleberry syrup and Chantilly sweet cream, while fans of a savory breakfast will want to get down with Le Dirty Croque, served with tri-tip and mornay sauce on a slice of brioche. There will also be a new selection of drinks meant for morning booze consumption like the Kris Collins with St. George Green Chili Vodka, muddled olives, soda and lime. Sunday is also the debut of Dirty Water's "Shuck Love" menu, an all-day oyster happy hour with oysters for $1.50 each or $15/dozen and half-price bottles of Drappier Champagne.
UNION SQUARE— While you can't often brunch during the week, you can happy hour, and that's where Café Claude comes in with a new weekday happy hour from 4-6 p.m., Monday-Friday, featuring several appetizers for $6 (Croque Trio, Butcher's Board, Claude's Poutine, and Spicy Frites) as well as dollar oysters. They're also offering several $6 cocktails and $6 glasses of red and white wine on tap. Café Claude also introduced a new $25 three course prix fixe menu, which includes guest favorites like the Goat Cheese Tartelette, Mustard Crusted Salmon, and Crème Brûlée. Lunch is available from 11:30 am.-4 p.m., Monday-Saturday.
MISSION— Myriad Gastro Pub is also getting into the happy hour game with a fun five for five at five deal. There will be five rotating beers for $5, five snacks for $5 (highlights include deviled eggs, chicken liver mousse, and a pot o' pickles), and it all goes from 5-6:30 p.m. five days a week (Sunday-Thursday).
