At least that's what it looks like the restaurant is trying to get across, with the addition of a new weekend brunch menu.
Perhaps aiming to fill what I, at least, see as a gaping hole in the Peninsula brunch scene, Steins will on Saturdays and Sundays be serving up mid-morning friendly food like fried chicken and sour dough waffles with eggs over easy, pork belly eggs benedict, grilled chicken and brie cheese, a sausage sampler and vegetable frittata.
Brunch booze includes the classic bloody mary (if it's your thing, step it up from the signature to one made with housemade smoked tomato juice, topped with pickled veggies and candied bacon), bottomless mimosas and champagne-based cocktails, from the "citrus spring" (sugar cube, chilled champagne, angostura bitters and a lemon twist) to the "champagne punch" (raspberries, blueberries, melon, lemon juice, simply syrup and champagne) and a blackberry bellini (mixed with housemade blackberry puree).

Steins also serves coffee from San Francisco's Sightglass.
Check out the new menu offerings Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the 895 Villa St. restaurant. View the full menu here.
