The chef at this hip new Uptown wine bar peviously worked at Morimoto and Momofuku Ssam Bar. Right now, the kitchen is serving a small, but interesting brunch menu that includes dishes like eggs Benedict, breakfast tacos, brioche French toast, a Monte Cristo sandwich, and a fried chicken bun. Brunch is also something of a deal here — you can get an entree and a glass of wine or beer for just $16.
