Brunch near SF Centre...Saturday, need recs
mom and i will be spending the day shopping and will need to be fueled by bloody marys and brunch. suggestions? i am staying at the W and we would like to be in hoofing distance from Union Square and SF Centre.
There is a big new food area in the Westfield Mall, which is essentially the old Emporium on Market St. - I don't know what brunch offerings they have, but I'm sure you could check out their website.
Canteen on Sutter has a phenomenal brunch. Perfect benedict, excellent pancakes and hash. A few blocks from Union Square, though a bit of a schlep from the Centre. Well worth the trek, IMO (I've traveled from Berkeley just to eat there, the brunch is so good).
What about staying at the W for brunch? They will definitely have bloody marys if that's what you're after. There isn't too much in the form of brunch in Union Square outside of the hotels, Dottie's or Sears Fine Foods - and the latter probably do not have bloody marys. Maybe the Italian place on Powell is another option...Kuleto's. Actually I think the restaurant at Nordstrom has a full bar too.
