With balmy temperatures headed our way this weekend, indulge in a Mediterranean brunch at newly minted restaurant Ousia, which begins midday weekend meal service this weekend. Stay virtuous with Greek Yogurt ($10) with almond granola or embrace hedonism with the Donut Pikilia ($10), a sampler of their homemade donuts. They're doing a riff on the Greek Diner ($14) classics with two eggs, smashed potatoes and choice of meats. They're offering a full lunch-type menu, too, plus brunch cocktails like Bloody Marys ($12) and a Build Your Own Mimosa ($12).

Channel the sea (as in seafood) at Williamsburg's All Hands and take in the bridge views while dining on their new brunch menu, which debuts on Sunday.

Brunch staples are updated, like Poached Egg Benedict ($16) with salmon rillettes on potato pancakes and Steak and Eggs ($17) can be upgraded with Maryland crabmeat for $9.
