Is Lunch the New Brunch?

Despite the popularity of the late morning or early afternoon weekend meal, many restaurants are opting to serve the meal intended for noon. That’s right, lunch is taking back the spotlight from brunch. Restaurants including Embeya, Carriage House and Katherine Anne Confections announced the addition of lunchtime menus. The latest to join the trend is La Sirena Clandestina.

The Fulton Market restaurant started serving weekend brunch a few weeks ago, but that went over so well that it will now open earlier during the week as well. Starting at 11 AM, lunch items include a selection of small plates and sandwiches. Start by sharing the ceviche with mojo rojo, arugula and housemade saltines and then move on to a grilled beef tenderloin or roasted pork sandwich.

Food coma-inducing larger plates include a whole fried fish served for market price as well as a 5-oz. hanger steak with garlic fries, caramelized onion and housemade giardiniera. Enjoy each of these dishes with one of the bar’s fresh-squeezed juices, Fever Tree ginger ale or bottomless La Colombe coffee. Lunch is served daily until 3 PM. Don’t forget one of La Sirena’s signature empanadas for the road.
