Milk & Roses is a renaissance restaurant: it has a great bottomless brunch ($29 for one hour of unlimited mimosas and one entree), a sprawling back patio, an Italian-ish dinner menu that includes both pasta and pigeon, and a very charming interior filled with bookcase-lined walls, so you can feel highly intellectual as you eat or drink.
