Where to go for Sunday brunch is one of those frequently asked unanswerables. I don't do brunch often myself--there's something depressing about those long, silver-lidded lines of food, and brunch menus tend to be too rich for the time of day. But a raw bar is a natural, so when you combine seafood with a brunch, you have a pretty appealing meal. Fish, the seafood restaurant in the refurbished Paramount Hotel, is a pretty perfect morning place--window-lined and light-filled--and chef Chris Svalesen's champagne menu includes seafood specialties like crab cakes and Chilean sea bass, as well as the raw bar, and even traditional breakfast foods like made-to-order omelettes, waffles, and pastries. $19.95 served from 10:30 a.m. till 2 p.m.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
