Roughly a month after opening, right in time for the season West Village bistro Clarkson has started serving brunch. Expect American classics with French influences, such as egg sandwiches, ricotta herb pancakes, a burger and, of course, both cheese and pastry plates (Saturday and Sunday, 11:30 AM-4 PM; 212-675-2474).
Bareburger is also getting into the brunch game, offering decadent items like carrot cake French toast, fried chicken 'n' waffles and a Maryland crab cake egg sandwich. ...From the sound of the menu, be sure to schedule nap time after your meal. You're going to need it (Saturday and Sunday, 11 AM-3 PM; multiple locations).
