BLT breakfast (and lunch)

BLT Steak starts two new menus this week: a renovated Power Breakfast and a new lunch lineup, both designed to "reflect the steakhouse sophistication, Southern inspiration and classic French training" of the site and namesake chef Laurent Tourondel.

Among the morning list are almond brioche French toast with cinnamon-caramelized bananas, eggs "Ritz" (with spinach, crab and cayenne-lemon hollandaise) and a breakfast burrito served with home fries or grits. At midday, there are combo selections such as a burger and fries with your choice of beverage; add a soda and it's $17, a milkshake, $19; a draft beer makes it $22. Veggie falafel, swordfish burger and strawberry-rhubarb crisp are other dishes offered.

110 N. College St. in The Ritz-Carlton; 704-972-4380.
