Fancy weekend brunches with prime rib and eggs and omelet stations are definitely a thing in Wichita.

And recently, three of Wichita's nicest restaurants — restaurants that are usually open only for dinner — have added fancy brunches to their list of offerings.

None of them is a buffet, but all feature menus full of breakfast and lunch-appropriate offerings.

And they are...

Redrock Canyon Grill, 1844 N. Rock Road, 316-636-1844: It's common to crave Redrock Canyon Grill's food during the day, but until now, you'd just have to wait until they opened for dinner. Just two weeks ago, the restaurant added brunch hours —11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays — and they also debuted a special brunch menu. It's full of breakfast items like quiche, huevos rancheros, French toast and chicken pot pie. Diners also can order sandwiches and some of the restaurant's regular house specialties, including rotisserie chicken, meatloaf, ribs and chicken enchiladas.

6S Steakhouse, 6200 W. 21st St., 316-361-6667: This new fine-dining restaurant added Sunday brunch two weeks ago. It's served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday. Its menu is a la carte, but on Mother's Day — May 13 — it will offer a buffet. The 6S brunch menu has items like eggs Benedict, a steak omelet, a breakfast burrito, corn flake French toast plus a few salads and sandwiches. The brunch also includes breakfast cocktails and a bloody mary bar.

Hangar One Steakhouse, 5925 W. Kellogg, 316-941-4900: Hangar One started its brunches in early April and is now open from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The restaurant has added 22 new items to the menu, including steak and eggs with breakfast potatoes.

Wichita businessman Brandon Steven gives us a tour of his new steakhouse, 6s. Steven won’t say how much he spent on the restaurant, but he acknowledges he could have built three restaurants for what he spent.
