What to get: Feta toast

Price: $12

Anna’s take: Rail was actually my very first food review, but it recently revamped its menu and transitioned from a dinner restaurant to a brunch and lunch spot. I sampled the feta toast, a colorful serving of sourdough smeared with whipped feta, drizzled with honey and topped with a rainbow of arugula, mint chimichurri, radish, cucumber and strawberry. I also sampled a slice coffee cake ($5), which is a gluten-free, beautifully marbled cake dusted with a cinnamon pecan crunch. The third item I tried was the Chorizo B’s & G’s ($9.50), a chorizo twist on classic biscuits and gravy with chorizo gravy, cheddar corn-drop biscuits, cilantro chimichurri, cotija crema and radish. The dish comes with two split biscuits smothered in delicious gravy.

Suggested pairings: Rail has an elaborate brunch cocktail menu with mimosa selections and a breakfast Manhattan, a Bloody Mary and other libations.
