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.
