Oh sure, folks go on and on about the burger at Epic Roasthouse in San Francisco, a half-pound behemoth ($20) made from the trimmings of all that primo Prime grade beef on the menu.
But one cannot live by burgers alone. Well, not all the time, anyway.
To that end, there’s also brunch. The restaurant, a short hop from the Harbor Court Hotel, offers brunch, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Take a seat inside or outside this restaurant, which is right on the Embarcadero and boasts picturesque views of the Bay.
A $40 prix-fixe option offers your choice of mimosa or Bloody Mary plus an organic yogurt parfait or cup of creamy corn soup, then a choice of entrees such as an open-face Meyer lemon shrimp sandwich on brioche or New York steak and poached eggs, plus beignets.
Or settle in for an a la carte plate of strawberry ricotta pancakes with balsamic glaze and strawberry mint butter ($12), breakfast pizza with duck egg and bacon ($14), almond polenta waffle with bacon and Seville orange marmalade ($10) or Dungneness crab cake Benedict ($16).
And psst, if you can’t live without it, the Epic burger also is served at brunch.
