Starting Sunday July 29th, Maven in the Lower Haight is going to be launching weekend brunch. Yes, and with Kate Bolton’s fab cocktails, you are gonna be set. A peek at the menu reveals eggs Benedict, a vegetarian omelet with housemade ricotta, duck hash with a duck egg, souffléd German pancake, and cherry bread pudding-French toast. You can also choose from a bunch of sides, from breakfast links to mezcal-infused chorizo (goodness). Oh yes, and their delicious burger will be on the menu too.
Morning cocktails include the Summer’s Kiss (gin, strawberry, tomato water, basil, balsamic) and Death in the Afternoon (bubbles, absinthe sorbet). You can look at the most recent version of the menu here. Hours will then be Sat–Sun 11am–4pm, with cocktails in the afternoon until dinner service kicks in at 5:30pm.
598 Haight St., at Steiner St., 415-829-7982.
Now open after its seven-week renovation (by designer Tonya Beluschi), E&O Trading Company is now E&O Asian Kitchen, plus a new look and refreshed menu for diners (chef Sharon Nahm collaborated with chef Arnold Eric Wong on the dishes). New menu items include Asian “gnocchi” with beef filet, cabbage, and rice sticks topped with spicy soybean sauce; dan dan noodles; crudo on a Himalayan salt block (currently wild salmon); and lapsang souchong deviled tea eggs with Chinese bacon. Lead bartender Carlos Yturria has revamped the menu, with Asian-inspired cocktails like the Sutter Punch with pisco, pineapple, sherry, mezcal, and lemon. Take a look at the new menu here (food, drinks, and wine are included).
Guests will notice the larger lounge area; a new color palette of earth, gray, and golden tones; and a new live music program. Extended business hours are also part of the changes: dinner service is Sunday 5pm–10pm, Mon–Wed 4pm–10pm, and Thu–Sat 4pm–11pm, with a late-night bar menu Thu–Sat until midnight or close.
314 Sutter St., at Grant Ave., 415-693-0303.
