An unbeatable brunch

 

As more Dublin restaurants throw their hat in the brunch ring, declaring its menu the “Brunch of Champions” is a brave move for New York-style Italian eatery San Lorenzo’s.

It certainly has some contenders for the belt, with its Ivan Fitzpatrick pulled ham-hock potato cakes with poached eggs and home fries (€9.95) or confit duck and spring onion hash with Boston baked beans (€12), or the barbecue chilli beef nachos with all the trimmings (€12.95).

But it’s this lobster Benedict (pictured) that is the real heavyweight: chopped warm Howth lobster with basil and red pepper, poached free-range eggs, asparagus and choron sauce on a toasted bagel (€19.50). It’s breakfast, lunch and dinner rolled into one, knocking any lingering hangover well into next week.
