Cocktail bar mavens Robert Ceraso and Jason Mendenhall — the partners behind The Wayland and Good Night Sonny — now have a less-boozy daytime restaurant near the High Line called The Wild Son. The restaurant at 53 Little West 12th St. opened today and currently only serves breakfast and lunch, with a menu focused on the "healthy philosophy" of eating grains, vegetables, meat, and fish.  This is the space that briefly housed Seamus Mullen's El Colmado Butchery.

Dishes include gluten-free buckwheat pancakes, a three-grain porridge, a smoked trout sandwich, and a vegan cauliflower steak sandwich. And in lieu of a cocktail program, The Wild Son offers a long menu of non-alcoholic juices, sodas, and coffee. Sodas and juice drinks will be made on-site with a carbonating system, and nitro cold brew coffee and an iced coconut milk latte will be offered on tap. The Wild Son will eventually serve a dinner menu near the end of the summer. Check out the full breakfast and lunch menu below.
