It's very trendy in foodie circles to dismiss brunch entirely. The thinking here is that brunch food is boring and hastily prepared, and also, restaurants are mobbed with amateurs, everything's overpriced, the Mimosas are watered down, etc., etc., etc. This is, of course, true of some but not all establishments in this city. There are many, many restaurants that offer great food and service during brunch, and yet, the brunch lovers and brunch haters cannot see eye-to-eye.
That might change, though, with the launch of brunch at The Elm, Paul Liebrandt's critically-acclaimed Williamsburg restaurant. It's a brunch menu re-imagined by a master of modern cuisine, so the foodie brunch-haters have something to get excited about along with the eggs Benedict enthusiasts.
