This weekend, Do or Dine — Bed-Stuy’s best-known purveyor of foie-gras-filled doughnuts — will begin its version of all-day Sunday brunch. While owners Justin Warner and George McNeese continue as culinary directors, most of the new menu came from the mind of former Roberta’s brunch maestro Nick Subic. “I wanted the menu to be fun in a way we can only do here, but while still following some brunch guidelines,” Subic says. So far the lineup includes their infamous foie doughnut ($9, available off menu), Scotch-style deviled eggs with cilantro and sausage ($5), beef-brisket sausage and gravy ($11), and inch-thick caramel-apple griddlecakes with parsnip and ginger ($8). No coffee yet, but the menu helpfully suggests picking some up at nearby Bedford Hill. The plan is to serve brunch on Sundays from 2 to 10 p.m., but the restaurant will probably be closing a little earlier than that for at least the next couple of weeks. (We’d advise calling beforehand.) In the meantime, check out the full menu, straight ahead.
