With all the press play Merkato and Bagatelle have gotten, their meatpacking neighbor Nero has obviously been feeling left out. We hear that while the restaurant will stick to its usual unlimited Champagne deal on Sundays, it’s going to start experimenting with a bottle-service brunch, complete with D.J.’s on Saturdays, forming a veritable Brunch-muda Triangle that bankers can vanish into. Details are still coming together, but reservations will likely be accepted starting this Friday. Meanwhile, starting April 10, Paradou will go one further by introducing a Friday brunch for the funemployed. Same deal as its wildly popular Saturday and Sunday brunches: $29 gets you an entrée and unlimited Champagne. No bottle-buying necessary.
