Nearly a year into his overhaul of Jamaica Plain taqueria Casa Verde, chef Owen Royce-Nagel is finally serving the best meal of the week. Sunday brunch launches this weekend at Casa Verde with a slew of brand-new savory, sweet, and spicy dishes, and we have the first look at the new menu.

Begin with a Bloody Maria made with bacon-infused tequila, or another one of the new brunch drinks; and maybe a dozen freshly shucked oysters. Then, classic brunch fare gets a Latin twist, such as cornmeal pancakes with a dollop of chili-lime butter; and a omelet filled with chipotle-spiced cauliflower, Chihuahua cheese, and salsa verde. The house-made tortillas that Royce-Nagel introduced this past spring are ever-present, with a selection of tacos (with or without a fried egg), and dips for chips. They also serve as the basis of Casa Verde’s new chilaquiles, which are available for omnivores with barbacoa, or with vegetarian chili. Check out the full menu below.

Prior to taking over Casa Verde last year, Royce-Nagel cooked at its sister restaurant Tres Gatos. He is the chef behind the itinerant JP Beer Garden, and is also an alum of Row 34, Craigie on Main, and Eastern Standard. While Casa Verde has served brunch in the past, this new menu is its strongest yet, says owner David Doyle—and it’s here to stay. Brunch continues every Sunday at Casa Verde from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
