The best dishes of the day came first and last: creamy smoked burrata, drizzled with truffle vinaigrette and topped with chopped leeks ($8) and a warm, vanilla-scented mascarpone crepe smothered in a sauce made of figs, huckleberries and strawberries, sweetened with hazelnut honey ($9). Still, I'm not sure I liked them enough to order them again.

Drink: Take your pick among options such as fresh-squeezed OJ, interesting coffee drinks, a Mimosa pitcher (serving 2-4 for $20) and the House Bloody (a simple but effective Bloody Mary made with Tito's vodka, Worcestershire, cracked black pepper and ghost chile, $10).

Conclusion: I've been a Matt Carter fan since his early days at Zinc Bistro, but this brunch felt remarkably like tourist food -- uninspired, expensive and a little insulting. If Carter wants to attract locals who already know how good his food can be, he's going to have to wake up and smell the coffee.
