Best brunch for discerning non-omnivores: LOLITA’S WINE MARKET

Best brunch for discerning non-omnivores

A beet salad has got to be pretty freaking amazing for a guy like me to yearn for it, but I do yearn for Lolita’s beet salad. And the pimento cheese. And the anything with eggs in it. While this tiny Grand Central District haunt is known primarily for wine and charcuterie, there’s always something tasty and elegant on the menu when you stop in on a Sunday for food and a glass or three of bubbles. Make sure you get there early, though — I’ve walked over a few times only to find no open tables. 16 18th St. S., St. Petersburg. 727-505-0503. —Scott Harrell
