Where to Eat Brunch This WeekendBy Danya Henninger

The Spot: The Good King Tavern
The Gist: Half a block off South Street, Côte d'Azur native Bernard Gigri and his daughter Chloe have created a cozy brasserie that truly channels the coast of France. Brunch launched just last weekend.
Eat This: Chef Paul Lyons (ex Barbuzzo, Morgan’s Pier) makes his own breakfast sausage, which is perfect under a poached egg with charred scallion pistou; salmon tartines with paper-thin slivers of red onion and pickled mustard seeds will have you cheating on your bagel more than once.
The Scene: The pressed tin walls and carved wood booths that make the small room seem intimate at night have an enlivening effect during daylight - this is a place you’ll run into neighbors but also find destination brunchers returning for the food and cocktails.
Know Before You Go: If you want to beat the crowds, hit up brunch on Fridays - it’s served 11 AM-3 PM, just like on the weekend.
