"We wanted to jump start it after Restaurant Week," said general manager John Sleamon. "Next week we'll be open for brunch on both Saturday and Sunday, but this week it's just Sunday."
The brunch menu, available Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., will feature four flavors of arepas (traditional savory Latin-style pancakes), build-to-order omeletes with ingredient options such as pickled onions, chorizo, drunken goat cheese, and escabeche salsa, and a variety of South American-themed entrees.
Brunch-goers will also find a build-your-own Bloody Mary menu, made with Lena's house-infused liquors.
Lena has been serving Latin-American flavored food since opening late last summer in the space formerly occupied by The Parthenon, on the corner of Liberty and Main Streets. Detroit Free Press reporter Sylvia Rector recently listed the restaurant as one of the best new restaurants in Metro Detroit.
