Open a little more than a month, chef Michael Hung is putting his stamp on classic eats at Faith & Flower downtown. The restaurant - with all its tufted velvet, leather and crystal chandeliers - is pretty sexy at night but it also makes a nice backdrop for weekend brunch, which is now available. It's the kind of place you expect to eat bone marrow waffles with chipped beef gravy; slow scrambled egg mousse with truffled country potatoes; and duck confit croquettes with spicy kumquat preserves. There are also egg Benedict pizzas; the raw bar for chilled oysters, hamachi ceviche and lobster; and fabulous vegetable sides and salads, which may add some balance. For something sweet, bread baskets come with fresh-baked muffins, croissants and seasonal jams. Other pastries can be ordered a la carte. Cocktails are only $10, including the Legionnaire, a fancy shot and a beer combo of Armagnac and Modern Times Saison, or the Bloody Mary with bacon garnish. For a group, sangria is $45 by the pitcher. That's one way to celebrate Mother's Day. Find all of this and more on Saturdays and Sundays, 10 AM-3 PM.
