Is it my birthday?
Since undergoing a revamp last fall, Nao Latin Gastro Bar
(312 Pearl Pkwy., 210-554-6484) has added a pretty solid brunch to its lineup. And since The Pearl has all the #brunchgoals you could possibly want, that means it's pretty difficult to get in there on weekends to enjoy mimosas on that awesome patio while waving at people eating David Lee Roth burgers across the way at Boiler House.
The pan-Latin eatery announced via press release that brunch will be offered Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. until Saturday May 28.
This means you can have you noon-time chilaquiles verdes con pollo, soft egg and queso fresco for lunch on Wednesday. It means you CAN wave at the folks at Boiler House while you nosh on torreja, a French toast-esque dish with cinnamon milk-soaked bread, dulce de leche and stewed plantains. Bonus: You can order a mimosa or Latin Mary (Maria?) with sotol, housemade mix and cilantro.
People who aren't into breakfast foods
can still order a few lunch options from the restaurant's regular menu, including the grilled beef sandwich and the Cuban sandwich.
