Psychic Bar Is Now Doing Brunch

Psychic, the cocktail bar on Mississippi now run by Diane Lam, is generally sticking to fried chicken and rice during its evening service. However, Lam is getting into some new territory with the bar’s new weekend brunch service. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, the bar serves dishes like mapo tofu biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, and strawberry french toast, with Deadstock coffee and slushies to sip on the side.

Luke’s Lobster Is Landing in Southeast Portland for a Month

Luke’s Lobster, the East Coast lobster chain, is collaborating with Cafe Rowan through the summer. Starting in mid-June, the brunch cafe will serve Maine lobster — straight from Luke’s — with mayo and melted butter on a brioche roll. The lobster rolls will be available a la carte, with add-ons like Deadstock’s Lebronald Palmers, Oregon wines, and Cape Cod Salt & Vinegar chips. Keep an eye on the restaurant’s Instagram for more specific dates. [EaterWire]
