Zengo has started making an excellent weekend brunch, reports jsandler.
The best dish there: Peking duck hash, made with poached egg, plantains, poblanos rajas, and caramelized onion. Beef tenderloin Benedict comes with perfectly poached eggs, kimchi, and hollandaise. And pan dulce—Mexican sweet bread with cinnamon whipped cream, Licor 43, star anise, and orange agave syrup—is worthwhile, with very balanced flavors.
The brunch is a great deal at $35 a person, says jsandler. “The four cocktails each my companion and I had would have cost more than that à la carte.”
