If you’re one of the many who wake up on Sundays only to find lines at all your favorite brunch spots, there’s a new option in town. Burial Beer is now offering a low-key, order-at-the-bar jazz brunch every Sunday.

The brunch features New Orleans-inspired food from Gary Sernak (Zambra, Admiral) and Josh Dillard (Zambra, Asheville Pizza and Brewing). The inaugural menu included waffles with crawfish, pork boudin and Creole sauce with a sunny-side-up egg as well as red beans and rice. Food sales start when the brewery opens at noon and end when the food runs out. You might not want to wait until the late afternoon, but when I stopped by, plenty of food was still coming off the grill towards 2 p.m.

The jazz that goes with the brunch comes from the Mandelkorn George Project, featuring Claude Coleman Jr. on drums, Simon George on keys and Ram Mandelkorn on guitar. They play from 1 to 4 p.m.

Burial Beer is at 40 Collier Ave. and is open 4-10 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 2-10 p.m. Saturdays and noon-8 p.m. Sundays. The jazz brunch is offered every Sunday.
