Brunch exists so we can start drinking earlier on the weekend. And why shouldn’t you? We have gathered up some great new brunch menus around town so you can live up to your “work hard, play hard” mantra.

Le Bistro Winebeast
G/F & 1/F Tai Yip Building, 141 Thomson Road, Wan Chai
Tel: 2782 6689Whether you’re brunching with friends or opting to spend some quality time with the little ones, the cosy Le Bistro Winebeast has got you covered. We know you’re already expecting great wine here, but throughout the months of September and October the restaurant is offering its brunch menu for only $180 per person, and wait for it… with up to two kids under the age of 12 dine for free! We particularly fancy the grilled beef bavette (175g) with sautéed green beans, as well as the smoked salmon carpaccio with poached egg, rocket salad and horseradish sauce. Brunch menu available every Saturday 11am to 4pm.
98 Ship Street, Wan Chai
Tel: 2528 5068Feeling decadent? Michelin-starred Restaurant Akrame’s five-course Sunday brunch is what you need to try right now. The brunch kicks off with Egg/Corn with a 63°C soft-boiled egg topped with popcorn and red shiso, then followed by a refreshing salad. The main course of Guinea Fowl is excellent, though you can also opt for a special lobster course for an extra $200. Round off the meal with the palate cleansing pineapple yogurt with dill and a dessert of Chocolate/Herbs/Meringue.
The delectable menu is paired with one of three beverage packages: free-flow soft drinks for $480, free-flow Mumm champagne, wines and soft drinks for $680, or swap out the Mumm for Perrier Jouet for an additional $100.
The Drawing Room
7/F Block C, PMQ, 35 Aberdeen Street, Central
Tel: 2156 0888An Italian roast brunch is just as scrumptious as it sounds: palate-waking antipasti for sharing, hearty pasta dishes, succulent roasted meats, and fruity desserts to wrap it all up. The marinated fish with avocado, green apple and mandarin really caught our eye (and hearts), while the roasted Italian veal rack with basil crust is another must-try on the menu.
Choose between a three-course ($488 per person) or four-course ($588 per person) menu. An extra $200 would get you free flow house champagne or $100 for free flow house red or white. Available every Saturday and Sunday, 12pm to 2.30pm.
