Fishtown brasserie Girard on Girard (300 E. Girard Ave.) is moving its hours as it approaches its first anniversary.
Starting on Tuesday, Dec. 1, the restaurant will open at 7 a.m. Tuesday to Friday and at 9 a.m. weekends to serve to-go coffee, breakfast sandwiches, house-made pastries, and a $5 weekday two-eggs-potatoes-toast--coffee special from 7 to 9 a.m.
Brunch will run till closing time, 3 p.m.
At the same time, the restaurant will stop serving dinner, with the exception of some pop-up dinners.
Owner Brian Oliveira said he was answering regulars' requests.
The new brunch menu includes:
- Ancient grain breakfast bowl, with sautéed apples, cranberries, candied pecans, goat cheese and herbs
- House-made yogurt, honey-almond granola, macerated blueberries, and lemon zest
- Baked mac & cheese
- French toast with orange ginger sauce and maple-hazelnut butter
- Avocado toast with house-made mascarpone cheese, grapefruit, and chipotle honey
- Quiche of the day
- Warm Buttermilk Biscuits
Oliveira says Girard on Girard is committed to its no-tipping policy.
Oliveira will host what he calls a grand reopening on Dec. 1, and he'll put out free drip coffee and bites from the new menu.
