Molly Abraham does brunch at Selden Standard: "If the word brunch evokes thoughts of lavish spreads on groaning buffet tables, think again. That's not Selden Standard style," Abraham writes. "Brunch here is a la carte, ordered from the menu, a simple one-page list of dishes with each one a specialty, from the two salads, arugula and pear with lemon vinaigrette and roasted beets with house-made ricotta, to the pastrami hash with poached egg." The owners think of Selden as "a neighborhood restaurant" and "there are a lot of neighborhoods that would love to have its style and substance in theirs." Selden receives four more brunchy stars.
