Libertine, located at the corner of 13th and Spruce Streets, inside the Fairfield Inn & Suites in the city’s Gayborhood, is introducing a new “Bagels, Bialys, and Benedicts” brunch, which debuts on Saturday, September 17th.

The new brunch, which features various rotating house-made bialys, will be available Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Throughout September and October, proceeds will benefit the William Way LGBT Community Center just down the block from the 261 S. 13th Street restaurant.

“We are in a prime location for brunch, a few blocks from the center of one of the busiest neighborhoods in the city,” said Davis, who opened Libertine in the Summer of 2018. “I think this new initiative will attract some crowds, and we expect to see some new faces as we offer a delicious variety of new dishes while raising money for a great cause. We tested our house-made bialys over the summer, and they were a huge hit with our guests.”
