The star of this lively brunch is the mimosa bar, where you can riff on the sparkling cocktail with splashes of passionfruit, pomegranate, and other juices instead of the usual orange. On the Italian-accented menu, look to the crespelle, layers of scrambled eggs, prosciutto, and fontina between crispy crepes. Asparagus Milanese brings together sunny-side-up eggs and fragrant truffle pecorino. And the burger with mushrooms and Gorgonzola is satisfying any time of day. Sunday 11:30 to 3.
