Local 360 on Brunch Repeat
It’s like a better version of Groundhog Day in which you relive the weekend’s most popular meal every day. Now through January 3, Local 360 is running brunch daily from 10 to 3 (resuming to its 9 to 3 time slot this weekend), then casually rolling into happy hour at 4 along with dinner. Brunch here includes dishes like pork belly chop salad, fried chicken and waffles with maple-pepper jelly, and rabbit sausage biscuit sandwich with bourbon gastrique with grits. Fret not, power lunchers. Regular lunch hours and menu will resume on January 4.

Tavolàta’s January Sunday Feast
Clear your Sunday because a lobster feast is happening. Ethan Stowell’s Italian eatery in Belltown is starting its Sunday Feast series with a heroic amount of lobster.

Dinner begins at 6 and tickets are $80 per person.
