Monday mornings are tough, but digesting this new series shouldn't be. Social Sightings is a collection of interesting food tidbits that we've spotted over the past week, posted by our favorite restaurants and bars. It goes down as easy as your first cup of coffee, and should whet your appetite for the week ahead.

Ping-pong is back at Ace Eat Serve, and now the Uptown eatery has brunch, too — and the roster isn't your typical bacon and eggs breakfast menu. Instead, you'll find kimchi bloody Marys, scallion pancakes, tall and fluffy Japanese pancakes, and much more. Available on Sundays only, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
