Charles begins serving brunch this Sunday. The dark lacquered space is a hard sell around the corner from bright sidewalk seating at Good, but chef Kristine Mana-ays menu will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (An abbreviated afternoon-tea menu will be served until 6 p.m.) Expect haute spins and (and corresponding high prices) on dishes like truffled grilled cheese, Eggs in the Hole with truffle oil, and a lobster BLT. You can still e-mail for reservations, but walk-ins are also welcome. Check out the new menu, below.
