“Maple: Saturday Brunch Launches This Week; Expansion Imminent

The first mimosa is on us on Aug. 2 before noon.

Maple’s Saturday brunch begins Aug. 2, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. To celebrate the expanded brunch, those joining us before noon this Saturday can enjoy a complimentary mimosa with their meals. We will also open at 10 a.m. on Sundays, an hour earlier than usual.

The revamped menu includes baccala potato cakes (panko-crusted cod and potato cakes served with sunny-side-up eggs and a mixed green salad), Brioche French toast with blackberry compote and whipped mascarpone cream, and short-rib hash, inspired by our popular short-rib panino.

We’re also putting the finishing touches on our expanded space, which will more than double our current seating capacity. We expect to open the new back patio, with seating for 34, within two weeks. The opening of our expanded indoor dining space will follow, with seating for 24 plus an upstairs 20-seat private dining room with a balcony overlooking the back patio.”

    Amazing! Love this place. This is such a good little strip of eateries. Wish we could fill it out even more! How about a deli or ice cream shoppe near by?

    One other thing… I wish more places on 11th St were open for lunch during the week. The Coupe is packed all day long. There is a market.

    This is good news. I like Maple a lot, but I almost never go there, because the wait is generally too long. I don’t suppose there’s any chance they will start taking reservations now they have more seats?

    Excellent! The food and service there are always amazing. This expansion is a good idea.
