Here’s What You’ll Be Eating When Harp & Crown Launches Weekend Brunch

They're also ending lunch service at the end of the month.

There are two big changes coming to Michael Schulson’s Harp & Crown in the next couple weeks. First, the restaurant will no longer be serving lunch following Friday, March 31st’s service. From then on, there’ll be happy hour on weekdays starting at 4pm, and then things will just roll right on into dinner. But hey, if you’re in the neighborhood and looking for something to eat before 4pm, Double Knot just a couple doors down (and also a Schulson restaurant) does a great lunch–rice and noodle bowls with some truly dangerous punch to drink–so just go there.

Anyway, that’s the first change. But the far bigger news is that the next day, Saturday, April 1st, Harp & Crown will start offering weekend brunches.

Want to know what they’re going to be offering? Of course you do. Check out the menu and details after the jump.

So here’s the deal: Brunch happens on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10:30am to 2:30pm. It’s basically a giant buffet, with all the grub arranged around the upstairs bar, plus active serving stations offering carved meats, omelets, waffles and other breakfast-y things. Brunch will run you $35 per person (plus tax and tip), and there will be mimosa, champagne and bellini pairings for and additional $20 a head.

Here’s what the brunch spread is going to look like.
