Vinyl, the popular music-themed bar in South End, will serve weekend brunch starting March 2.

Why it matters: Executive chef Matt Moore, who worked previously at VANA, developed the menu.

What to expect: The new brunch menus will be available on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-3pm.

  • Main dishes include croissant french toast, shakshuka, smoked salmon lox on sourdough bread, a fried egg sandwich and a braised pork shoulder dish. Prices range from $10 to $15 and sides start at $2.
  • Cocktails will range between $13 and $16. They include coffee-centered drinks like the "Back to Black," made with vodka, Caffé Lolita and Pepperbox cold brew coffee concentrate. For something refreshing, try the "Sunday Morning," made with tequila, Aperol, lemon juice, ginger syrup and muddled cucumber.

Go deeper: Vinyl is taking over the former VANA space in South End

Details: Vinyl is located at 1440 S. Tryon St. between Wooden Robot Brewery and the former VANA space.

  • It's open Monday-Friday 3pm-2am and Saturday-Sunday from 12pm-2am.

My thought bubble: Vinyl's menu, which doesn't feature your typical bar food, is, in my opinion, underrated. It's a great spot to grab an early dinner before the nightlife crowd packs the place to the brim.
