Ever since I had a fantastic meal at Mica when it first opened, I’ve wanted to go back to Chestnut Hill for round two. This time, I may try brunch, which Chef Chip Roman is now offering on Sundays. Start with a house-made sangria or Bloody Mary, a fresh-squeezed mimosa or glass of refreshing juice. As for the food, Roman’s menu is seasonal and locally driven, with classic, comforting dishes and a refined touch that’s truly Roman. Try the brioche French toast with caramelized apples and applewood-smoked bacon; buttermilk pancakes with pumpkin butter and Chantilly cream; steak and eggs made with beef short ribs, grits and fried egg; or wild mushroom ravioli with shiitake and chives. The menu features plenty of side dishes, too, and main plates range $10-$15. 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Call (267) 335-3912 or visit micarestaurant.com.
