Lucky for you, bottomless mimosa-loving Seattleites, fall brings with it some new brunch options for the most important meal of the weekend.
Austin chef Maximillian Petty's new restaurant on upper Queen Anne will begin its Sunday brunch service (10am to 2:30pm) this weekend after opening last month. It's a boozy, "new American" menu, complete with Bloody Mary mussels, duck egg banh mi, and a new punch recipe every week.
Open for only a short window on the weekends (10am to 1pm), Edouardo Jordan's destinationworthy neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Ravenna offers a brunch menu fusing southern comfort, Italian charcuterie, and Northwest ingredients, from cornbread pudding with huckleberry compote to salmon rillette with poached egg and capers.
The Seattle standard has a new location at 65th and Roosevelt. Same weekend hours (7:30am to 2:30pm) and sustainably minded menu as its three sibling restaurants but with a bit less of a wait, at least for now. The biggest challenge this weekend will be deciding between sweet (oatmeal cobbler french toast) or savory (farmer's hash with local veggies, potatoes and herbs), and seeing how many return trips you can make to the breakfast bar.

Chef Mac Jarvis, credited for reviving the brunch menu at Grim's, has created a lengthy weekend menu for the Guild Seattle restaurant group's new Italian venture on 19th Ave. Open from 8am to 1pm Saturday and Sunday, the restaurant on 19th offers a more traditional take, from a hot Italian sausage and creamy leek omelet to seared New York steak and eggs.
Monica Dimas's walkup inside Nacho Borracho at 209 Broadway East kicked up its menu in August with the addition of Northwest/Mexican inspired brunch from noon to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. It's less bougie, more hearty post-night-out-at-the-bars fare; Dimas is serving up dishes like baked eggs, torta Benedict, and "all the tacos your heart desires."
