The name of this clubby restaurant stands for mon petit dejeuner ("my breakfast"), a reference to the rollicking brunch parties owners Derek and Daniel Koch have thrown at spots like Merkato 55. The sibling duo plans to revive the soirees occasionally at their own first venture—for now, daily breakfast-for-dinner specials like crab Benedict doused in smoked-tomato hollandaise nod to the theme. The rest of the French-leaning menu includes options like bordeaux-braised short ribs over thyme-redolent polenta, though you may choose to stick with a liquid diet of Hennessy-fortified rosé sangria, or cocktails like the Monsieur Ginger (Maker’s Mark, ginger, honey).
