Throughout the Weekend: Clement in the The Peninsula hotel just launched its brunch, and they've got a Bloody Mary bar with just about any garnish imaginable, "free-flow Champagne", and eats like crispy, butterscotch French toast, steak and eggs, and a signature burger made of dry-aged beef, cheese, and... popcorn!? You've probably got a brunch of questions...
Place-That-Only-Serves-S'mores of the Week: With Thanksgiving over, you can finally start to put Fall behind you in the marshmallowiest way possible with Brooklyn's Winter Warmers, a new shop that only serves s'mores, with all kinds of crazy mix-and-match toppings like heath chips & coconut or gooey marshmallows.
