Canteen Cancels Brunch, For Good

Citing “a lifestyle decision, not an economic one,” Canteen chef-owner Dennis Leary has put an end to Sunday brunch a year after he stopped serving it on Saturday. Fans of the tiny restaurant’s excellent brunch are quite sad about this now, and some Chowhounders have been lamenting and sharing their ideas for brunch alternatives. We’d recommend such places that take reservations as Bar Agricole, Park Tavern, Citizen’s Band, and Foreign Cinema, or places where you’re not likely to have to stand in line like Schmidt’s, Bar Tartine (where it’s all counter service during the day now), or Show Dogs.
