Best Brunch, Seated - 2006
We can think of no better way to while away a weekend morning-into-early-afternoon than seated at a table, either within sight of Market Street or tucked away in one of Zuni's many corners (up a few stairs, around an angle, down a few steps), enjoying iced oysters, a seafood platter, a divine Caesar salad, a pizza, a stellar burger on focaccia, cereallike soft polenta topped with mascarpone, or chef Judy Rodger's signature roast chicken for two, not to mention brunchy egg dishes (Sundays only). You can wash down this repast with a glass or a bottle of wine chosen from Zuni's eclectic list, or an expertly concocted cocktail. Linger over freshly assembled cannoli, an array of house-made sorbets and ice creams, or a cheese plate. Afterward you can check out some of the upper Market antique stores, or waddle home for a richly deserved nap.
