First Look at Union Square Cafe's New Brunch

[Photographs: Christine Tsai]

Danny Meyer's Union Square Cafe has served seasonally-inspired food near New York's biggest Greenmarket for more than 25 years. But this Saturday, they're rolling out the restaurant's very first brunch menu, which will be served Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Here is a sneak peek at what you might expect, from soft-scrambled Knoll Crest Farm eggs (served with crunchy strips of bacon for dipping), to tender apricot babka, to a clay pot of tender braised beef with cranberry beans and peppers topped with a runny egg. (Chef Carmen Quagliata says that dish is the kitchen's favorite hangover helper.)
