What to Eat for Brunch at Roof

As long as Roof at the Wit is equipped to be open year-round, they might as well open the doors in the morning. Enter weekend brunch service, which the so-trendy rooftop lounge just launched. Featuring an all-small-plates menu from chef Todd Stein, the offerings skew Italian — sugary fried bomboloni, a pancetta-tomato-arugula spin on the BLT, a “breakfast pizza” topped with bacon, potato, and egg. As with most small-plates concepts, there are some odd ducks in the mix: listed between the pancakes (a shareable “short stack” of mini buttermilks decked out with Bliss syrup and mascarpone) and the sliders (a very breakfast-appropriate fried mortadella and scrambled eggs) is “hot chocolate,” spiked with Godiva liqueur and garnished with a cayenne marshmallow. This one isn’t so much for the stroller crowd. Read on for the full menu.
