Pera Now Serving Brunch

Pera in Potrero Hill has made some changes: there is more of a dedicated wine bar where you can hang out, and co-owner Irfan Yalcin has been leading the kitchen since their former chef Muhammet Culha left earlier this year. Yalcin is reportedly turning out new delicious dishes using old-world recipes that are very Turkish in origin. Which is why they are adding weekend brunch! On the weekends, you will get a classic Turkish breakfast of eggs cooked to order, menemen (my favorite breakfast in Turkey: eggs and peppers), sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, three kinds of cheese and olives, homemade jam, honey, hot bread, herb and feta omelets, fresh fruit, and traditional red tea brewed in a samovar. There are a few other dishes like French toast and their regular lunch menu.
