Quad Ale House Launches Brunch; Saltbox's Slider & Taco Specials

Plus, Monello brings risotto tableside.

GASLAMP— Quad Ale House chef Brandon Brooks has a new weekend brunch, served every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; lazy day menu options range from bacon, apple cinnamon fritters, buttermilk-berry pancakes and lemon-thyme ricotta-stuffed French toast to hearty eggs Benedict variations and fried chicken with sausage gravy atop a crisp waffle. Day drinking options include tons of craft beer taps, an endless mimosa option, and brunch boozers like the Quad Breakfast (Jameson and butterscotch liqueur served with a shot of OJ and a strip of bacon) and the Quad Coffee (Jameson, Aztec Coffee bitters, molasses bitters, whipped cream and cinnamon).

LITTLE ITALY— Monello is going next level with its new Wednesday on Wheel special that will be available every Wednesday starting at 5 p.m. For $25, a chef will cook a shareable portion of risotto (variations could range from black truffle to lobster) at your table, using a hollow-out wheel of Parmesan cheese to enrich and serve the dish.
