Earl’s starts Sunday brunch

Earl’s Grocery will start serving Sunday brunch this week, opening from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with its regular grill lunch menu, and adding six brunch-oriented specials. A few examples: “Green Eggs and Lamb” (!) or fattoush (that’s a Middle Eastern bread salad using pieces of flatbread), with cilantro eggs and housemade lamb sausage in pita with cumin yogurt.

Also on tap: Bloody Marys, Mimosas and a special spiked agua fresca – this week’s will be pineapple, lime, chile and your choice of vodka or rum.
