Sundays Are Changing At Aldine
George and Jennifer Sabatino‘s restaurant, Aldine, experimented with brunch on Easter. They tried it on Mother’s Day, and in a quiet, dry-run last weekend. But now they’re going to make it a regular thing starting this Sunday, December 20, and that’s not the only change they’re making.
They’re going traditional(ish) with the new brunch menu, offering favorites like poached eggs on toast with crispy potatoes (pictured above) and gluten-free pancakes with caramelized bananas. They’ve also got house-made, thick-cut Berkshire bacon served with hot sauce (because seriously, what’s better at breakfast than a big ol’ plate full of bacon?) and, to balance that, plates of granola with house-made yogurt and scratch fruit preserves. For you drinkers, Bess Gulliver has a special brunch cocktail menu including a “winterized” Pimm’s Cup made with local cider and fresh ginger juice.
Brunch starts at 11am and runs until 2pm. We’ve got the full menu below:

As for Sunday dinners, the Aldine crew is going prix fixe. They’re doing three courses for $35–which is a hell of a deal, considering the first two courses will consist of choices from the regular dinner menu, and the third will be a choice of two different desserts. That kind of meal would run you double that, easy, on any normal night.
Sunday dinners start at 5pm and the normal menu will not be served.
