This fish market/dining room tends to be as packed for brunch as for dinner, so make a reservation or be prepared to sit at the bar. It’s easy to see why the place is a hit: There are welcome bowls of fruit salad, Cucumber Fizz and Pimm’s Cup cocktails that go down easy, and a tight, well-executed menu. Go for a house-made bagel slathered with cream cheese dotted with charred scallions and topped with wonderful gravlax; poached eggs with crab, crawfish, and cayenne-spiked hollandaise; or a small plate of silver-dollar-size corn pancakes. Chunky granola swirled with crème fraîche is a winner on the lighter side. Sunday 11 to 2.
