The beloved Brunch for Dinner pop-up has finally opened in its permanent home in North Beach in the form of Hilda and Jesse. Chef Kristina Liedags Compton, along with co-owner Rachel Sillcocks, have created a bright, exuberant destination for lengthy brunches (and breakfast for dinner on Monday evenings), complete with striking murals and portraits of the duo’s grandparents alongside checkered floors and vintage, red vinyl swivel seats in a sweet nod to ‘50s-style diners. Classic comfort meets refined finesse with dishes like Cured McFarland Springs Trout, Dry-Aged Ribeye and Eggs, Hash Browns with Fermented Green Garlic Gribiche (and an optional caviar add-on), and Compton’s wildly popular “Pancakes Without Boundaries,” a double stack of souffled pancakes topped with grilled fruit and, if you’d like, white truffle. Opt for the Chef’s Adventure, a five-course tasting menu showcasing on- and off-menu items that the chef is most excited about, for $75.

Hilda and Jesse, a brunch spot that opened over the winter to instant success, pays homage to a traditional American diner but with a twist. This is seen in the decor—retro checkerboard tile, red and chrome swivel stools, pops of pastel everywhere—as well as on the menu. Where else are you going to get Pancakes Without Boundaries, a double stack of fluffy, souffled buttermilk pancakes with grilled cranberry maple and an option to add Perigord black truffle? There’s also a Crab and Caviar Omelet, Hashbrowns with Pork sausage, and for those who are already overwhelmed by these choices: there’s a three-course $45 brunch tasting menu with optional wine pairings (must be ordered by the entire table.
How to enjoy: Hilda and Jesse is open for all-day brunch Friday–Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm. Reserve a table online.
