A taste of the sea for brunch in JP

Sunday brunch with a seafood flavor—that’s what JP Seafood Café started to offer this month.

According to owner Phil Paik, Sunday brunch at the popular Korean and Japanese restaurant famous for its sushi will feature a traditional menu with a seafood touch.

So brunchers can have scallops with bacon and eggs or an omelet with white fish, for example. Pancakes are also on the menu.

Paik said he wants JP Seafood, located at the corner of Centre Street and Harris Avenue, to join the crowd of other restaurants in the area that already serve Sunday brunch so popular with local residents.

“Everybody is doing brunch now,” he said. “I have to offer something different. I want to make it reasonable and inviting. We put a lot of energy into developing the menu.”

Paik has been joined by his sister Karen Paik and brother James Paik in planning and executing the Sunday brunch in addition to the lunches and dinners the restaurant already serves.

“The town has grown so much,” Paik, a longtime JP resident, reflected. “It will be nice for us to be open then and nice for the street.”

JP Seafood’s sister restaurant, Village Sushi in Roslindale, was recently sold.

JP Seafood Café is located at 730 Centre St. Sunday brunch is being served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
