Friday Question of the Day – What Should a Proper Brunch Menu Look Like?

“Dear PoPville,

I was out walking in Petworth and saw a note that Petworth Citizen has started serving brunch. the menu (attached) looks like a lunch/dinner bar menu with a few waffles thrown in. I ate the chicken and waffles, and that was good, but I’d like opinions from others about whether they find this an appetizing selection for brunch. No pancakes? No french toast? No omelettes? Egg and grits as a starter? This all seems out of the ordinary to say the least. I don’t expect Citizen to have a menu that is long and complicated (when Coupe opened up, I was pretty disappointed and I hoped that the chef would take a machete to the menu and redirect resources to making a few great dishes), but this menu seems lacking. I’ll be interested to hear what others think.”

So what do you guys think a proper brunch menu should look like? What’s the closest one to perfect that currently exists? And out of curiosity since a related question was asked in the rant/revel yesterday – how often/how many times a month do you go out to brunch?
