The Harbord Street institution opens for brunch on March 31, serving the mid-morning meal on a weekly basis for the first time in its venerable 20-year history. (While Splendido serves an annual Mother’s Day brunch and a five-course lunch menu every December, it has never counted brunch as part of its regular service.) Combine that with participating in Winterlicious earlier this year and chef Victor Barry headlining Slurp Noodlefest this weekend and it looks like the white-linen restaurant might be making an effort to democratize its appeal for a more mainstream audience. Brunch runs from 11 am to 2 pm every Sunday—and reservations will be available. Bless.
