      I have to say, I have had completely the opposite experience at Compass: the food was unusual and very good, with a slightly different approach including a platter of delicious appetizers for the table, individual entrees, and the same assorted platter approach for dessert. Excellent service. I didn't like the food or service at the one brunch I had at Telepan, but it has its fans.

      Nice Matin is a lovely spot, and though I have not been for brunch I hear it is very good and I believe it is served Saturdays.

    2. Had brunch at Telepan a couple weeks ago and I was extremely underwhelmed. I was there with ten other people, and none of us were impressed.
