The Caribbean-inspired Williamsburg restaurant Battery Harris recently started offering a bottomless brunch from noon to 4:00 p.m. each weekend. Grab a seat on the roomy patio or sunny indoor space and dig into entrees like oxtail hash or the Caribbean breakfast (warm coconut bread with jerk sausage gravy and scrambled eggs). The mimosas and Bloody Marys are unlimited for a strict two hours, but the frozen dark and stormy ($10) is worth paying extra for.
