With a standout holiday dinner at The Establishment still on my mind, I decided to pop in for brunch with a friend on a recent spring afternoon. It's hard to imagine a more ideal downtown venue for a leisurely midday meal.

A buoyant boudin de mer (sausage of the sea), striped with translucent zucchini, sparkles in a citrusy escabeche. Mackerel, cured in beet essence, glistens on a wide swath of dill-perfumed crema. Crispy fingerling potatoes marshal this dish to a delicious finish-the sea, made manifest.
