A couple of spots near Hudson Square, Sora Lella and Bar Artisanal, have started serving brunch. Sora Lella’s goes from noon till 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, with cocktails discounted to $10. If you’re skeptical about “Italian toast” (a variation of French toast made with brioche), you can also order off the lunch menu. Meanwhile, Bar Artisanal’s brunch — featuring “plats du matin” such as a bacon, egg, and haddock mini-pizza — goes from noon till 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The restaurant will now be closed on Mondays and open for lunch from 11:45 a.m. till 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
