    A nearly 70-year-old Eastside bar and music venue that under its current ownership has put a lot of thought into its soul food menu. The result is short and sweet; the five main dishes are really all you need, because why would you want to order anything that isn’t chicken fried to perfection, served in some combination with grits, hash, biscuits, and/or waffles?

    FOLC is known for its family-style plates of American fare, a concept that works really well at brunch. Depending on the size of your party -- or the size of your appetite -- the Family FOLC should make everyone happy. Consisting of a half-chicken, eight eggs, four biscuits, roasted fingerling potatoes, and a Dutch baby prepared either savory or sweet, it’s a substantial meal that offers up a great representation of what FOLC is all about.

    Honestly, you could probably just eat piece after piece of thick, doughy bread slathered with butter that tastes like pancakes and be perfectly content to call it a day. But to do so would be to miss out on the chef’s creative takes on brunch fare -- which, like all of Monty’s menu, change according to available ingredients and the kitchen’s bursts of inspiration (though several items remain fairly constant staples).

    The richness of hollandaise and Brie is countered by the spinach and artichokes in the Sardou, by our decree rendering Cappy’s particular Benedict offering downright healthy. An equally valid route is the hearty meal with the straightforward name: Sunday breakfast, a beef tenderloin with scrambled eggs, Jack cheese, and pancakes.

    The eggs in hell -- three baked eggs in a spicy tomato sauce served with grilled bread and a charred lemon polenta -- are guaranteed to wake up your lazy Sunday. But Feast also accommodates sweet-toothed diners as well as those seeking a steak or burger. In the light of day, Feast’s chic, upscale-but-friendly vibe remains. And though it is probably the hottest joint in town right now, it somehow feels like simply a really, really great neighborhood joint.

    One of Chef Johnny Hernandez’s quintet of SA eateries, The Fruteria stays true to its Mexican roots in both atmosphere and food. Much of the brunch menu’s focus is on fruit, from fresh-pressed juices and licuados -- smoothie-like fruit blends -- to spiced fruit cups and salads bursting with seasonal fruit. Substantial plates, tortas, and open-faced tostadas showcase various proteins cooked with Mexican flare.

    Max’s accurately touts its fare as “gourmet comfort food,” including the jalapeño buttermilk-marinated chicken deep-fried in a way that gets it nice and crispy without overcooking or making it too greasy. It’s fantastic but just one worthy option on an eclectic and original brunch menu. And the service is always fast and friendly, even when the place is packed.

    Any time of day, visitors to the Pearl are met with an abundance of top-notch dining options. But if you’re deciding where to eat for brunch, consider Boiler House’s menu description of Hangover Hash: “Braised suckling pig, chichirones, potato-peppers-onion hash, two fried eggs, charred tomatillo salsa and sriracha crème.”

    The only iffy prospect when it comes to venturing out to Taps y Tapas is the certainty of finding parking. Otherwise, it is absolute perfection -- visually adorable, with plenty of seating inside and out, and with a tight but diverse menu of impeccably prepared dishes. Because this is a Mexican place, the offerings that fall within that genre are the true standouts.

    Cozy and inviting, Barbaro offers a thoughtful brunch menu that nods to the classics but doesn’t get bogged down by them. The biscuits are fabulous, the grits carbonara (soft egg, bacon, green onion, and Parmesan) manages to be both light and satisfying and unlike any dish you’ll find elsewhere, and the stellar build-your-own pizzas allow the brunch-food naysayers in your party to blaze their own trail.
