Bar Pilar: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

Anthony Bourdain’s hangover cure of choice might be leftover Chinese food, a Coke, and a joint. Ours is a robust Bloody Mary and an order of bull’s-eye toast—fat slices of “Texas toast” with a poached egg in the hollowed-out middle (even better doused in hot sauce). The rest of the menu is a carb-lover’s heaven—oversize pancakes, buttermilk biscuits with melty butter and jam, and crisp skillet potatoes—served at a leisurely pace. There’s only one way to follow up a meal like this: a nap. Saturday and Sunday 11 to 4.
