AROUND TOWN— CH Projects is rolling out new weekend brunch service at two of its hot spots. From 9 am to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Craft & Commerce’s executive chef Ted Smith is cooking up hearty daytime decadence ranging from a foie gras breakfast burrito stuffed with marinated skirt steak and comforting country fried chicken and waffles to a sweet goat cheese and orange marmalade-topped toast. Over at Soda & Swine’s original Adams Avenue spot, the hospitality group’s head chef Jason McLeod is rolling out a meatball-centric morning menu that includes new house baked jalapeño and cheddar biscuits that sandwich eggs, cheese, and any meatball or get served smothered in gravy. There’s also a mimosa champagne slushie, a fun frozen version of the brunch beverage staple. It’s all available from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. [EaterWire]

CORONADO— The next edition of the innovative Cosecha pop-up from chef Steve Brown will land at the recently-shuttered Shima Steakhouse.

Whiskey or wine pairings will also be offered. Tickets are $120. [EaterWire]
