3. Latin Bites Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Start with one of four different types of tropical sangrias ($5), a michelada ($6), or a glass of freshly blended guava juice ($5) before diving into the on-point selection of modern-casual Latin fare.

We love their take on migas, made with cubes of arepa, Peruvian corn, and hunks of ham and Argentine sausage. Or try one of our favorite pork sandwiches in tow; the rich and tender pork shoulder is sous vide for 24 hours before it makes its way to a pretzel bun. Also in play? Soft and supple sliced sweet potato, fiery aji amarilla mayo, and a bright and zesty salsa made with red onions, peppers, and cilantro.

2. Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Just like at its sister restaurant in the Heights, you'll most certainly be able to find something that suits your tastes at this "oysterette." And it'll be way more than just oysters.

Come here for anything from light and fluffy buttermilk pancakes -- made sweet (think banana, strawberry, and blueberry) or savory (think blue cheese, pork belly, and scallions) -- to crab, shrimp, and andouille gumbo. Of course, there's oysters, too. Get them raw, or "crazy grilled and fried."
