— Char Korean Bar & Grill, Richard Tang’s new Korean barbecue joint in Inman Park, launched weekend brunch service on New Year’s Day. Operating on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., Char is serving dishes such as Korean chicken and waffles, bibimbap, and hotteok (a hot cake with brown sugar and syrup). At the bar, look for bottomless mimosas to go with Char’s Korean-inspired cocktails.
— Chefs Kevin Gillespie and Andreas Müller are getting ready to debut brunch service at Revival this Sunday. The menu is still under development, but a couple of dishes have already made the cut: the “closed on Sunday” chicken sandwich (take that, Chick-fil-A) and the griddled meatloaf sandwich with aged cheddar on a caramelized onion roll. Scrambled egg and crêpe casserole with truffle mornay; smoked ham and onion breakfast strata; a breakfast plate with two eggs, grits, sausage, bacon, and biscuits; and catfish bites over grits with gravy are also contenders. Revival’s brunch will be available every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
— Nexto is rolling out lunch service, starting today. Tuesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., chef Mihoko Obunai’s Poncey-Highland ramen shop is offering cold and hot dishes to complement a selection of seven different noodle bowls. Toasted coconut with red bean ice cream and green macha ice cream is available for dessert.
