Midtown's popular gourmet Chinese eatery Blackbrick launches its weekend brunch starting this Saturday, April 19, from 11:30-4 PM. On top of the already popular dim sum offerings like lobster dumplings with ginger fenugreek butter, diners will also have a plethora of unique infusions to try including Peking duck with waffle, general's chicken liver toast and Sichuan beef tendon omelet with burnt chili oil. For drinks, you'll have draft beers, ciders and teas to choose from along with unique cocktails Bloody Mary made with spicy mustard and an MSG rim - oh yeah, for real.

Dish We Can't Wait to Try: The Hot Pocket made with Chinese laobing flatbread that's been stuffed with bacon, egg and a whole lot of gooey cheese.
