Eat More on Sunday

By Erin

Sundays are about to get a whole lot more scrumptious. Starting this weekend, two hot downtown restaurants will expand their offerings. Whether it's a breakfast version of a favorite pizza at brunch or a lobster burger at dinner, Sunday just got a whole lot sweeter.

If you have ever been relegated to the long line of people at Matchbox worrying, "We'll be here all night," before scoring a dinner table, now there might be a reason to hope that you are there until morning. Beginning this Sunday, Matchbox will offer Sunday brunch. From 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., you can delight in stuffed cinnamon French toast with cream cheese, a goat cheese and chorizo roll, cast iron egg dishes, a full menu of bloody Marys and more. If it's the restaurant's pizzas you crave, there will be brunch-friendly pizza with sausage, scrambled eggs, tomato sauce and gouda. On a sidenote, if late night dining is more your speed, the restaurant will offer late night bite, a scaled down menu of sandwiches, salads, mini-burgers and all of the pizzas on Fridays and Saturdays until 1 a.m.

Anyone who read last week's Food story on high-end burgers, has likely entertained a craving for that perfect patty from Central Michel Richard. Unfortunately, prime time reservations at Central are booked weeks in advance, which makes it tough to get a burger. Starting this Sunday, Central will open for Sunday dinner from 5 until 10 p.m. Yes, this means five more hours for you to scarf down your share of burgers or rotisserie chicken or gougeres or charcuterie ... Sunday reservations mean a whole new day of possible reservations, so if you book soon enough, you might be able to score a table at a desirable time. This will allow you to enjoy new libations like the clove mojito and old favorites like the banana split.
