Grazing with the brunch bunch
The omelets have "Star Wars" names and some staff flaunt their video game levels, but Julian's isn't just for fans of "The Big Bang Theory" TV show. The restaurant offers brunch daily, and long lines are the rule on weekends, and sometimes on weekdays. Vegans get their own section of the menu. (The tofu stands alone.) The big story here, however, is the revival and reinvention of breakfast hash, which comes in combinations like mushrooms and boursin cheese. Order it as a plate to share or as a side in lieu of home fries with the egg dishes. 318 Broadway, Providence, 401-861-1770, www.juliansprovidence.com. Brunch weekends 9 a.m.-2:45 p.m., weekdays 9-5. Entrees $3-$14.
