Brunch time begins soon, and the weekend meal scene is ever growing with new options. If you’re looking for something new, here are four recently-added brunches to try out, aside from the other 14 brunches available around the city.

DOWNTOWNWu Chow’s famous soup dumplings are now available for brunch with the modern Chinese restaurant’s Sunday dim sum service. Plus, there are potstickers, scallion pancakes, egg rolls, fritters, turnip cakes, and way more. Sweeter items include egg cream buns, egg custard tarts, and pineapple puffs.
Brunch hours: Sundays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

EAST CESAR CHAVEZ — Perfect for fall, Juniper’s modern Italian take on brunch features robust dishes like duck confit carbonara, wild mushroom polenta, oxtail lasagna, and pear and pecan Dutch babies. Over on the drinks side, the Bloody Marys come with beer backs, and the Uncle Nicky’s Cafe is topped with whipped vanilla cream.
Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

RAINEY STREET — Emmer & Rye’s brunch comes chock full of eggs, bread, and seasonal produce. Find English muffins, chestnut ricotta pancakes, and polenta. The daily dim sum service will skew towards brunch pastries like roll cakes and tea scones.
Brunch hours: Sundays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

EAST CESAR CHAVEZ — For something more laid back, pair trailer Pueblo Viejo’s Mexican brunch with Craftsman’s mimosas and morning-ready cocktails. The curious should try out the Breakfast Shot, made with maple-infused bourbon, orange juice, and bacon salt.
Brunch hours: Sundays starting at 11 a.m.
