Session Kitchen axes weekday lunch hours

If you're headed to Old South Pearl for lunch, you'll now have one fewer option: Session Kitchen has discontinued its extended brunch service from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday -- but will keep those hours and the same brunch menu Friday through Sunday.

General manager John-Mark Larter cites a lack of a lunchtime population in the area as the primary reason for the change. "We love Old South Pearl," he says, "but it's not a giant center of commerce with office buildings." Session Kitchen was serving about 35 customers for weekday lunches, he says, and while the restaurant took good care of those customers, it just didn't make financial sense to continue.

If you're a fan of chef Scott Parker's brunch menu, you'll still be able to partake on Fridays and weekends. Larter recommends the hashes, which Parker builds almost like omelets, folding griddled hash browns around fillings like pork green chile and Fritos or chicken and ham with gruyere and seared greens -- and then tops with two fried eggs. He calls the dish a "mess of deliciousness" -- and assures us that it's worth waiting for the weekend to try.

A friend returned from California for a visit and wanted to have a get-together with some friends. We convened at Sessions. Frankly, selling the concept of weekday "Brunch" sounded downright silly -- foodie bullshit, if you will. It was lunch, should have been marketed as lunch, and missed the boat on the vibrant lunch crowd that hits South Pearl. Did they actually plan to alienate midday diners with forced quirkiness?

Serving brunch on a weekday never made any sense anyway.  Come to think of it, serving brunch any day doesn't make sense.

@ScubaSteve Right. I much prefer to eat brunch, any day of the week, than to serve it.
