Brunch- a Culinary Journey, Italian

Bongiorno: Italian Brunch

My Brunch: a Culinary Journey menus offer you a taste of Paris, Italy or Mexico. Or you can stay home for a Classic American Brunch.

From our Bartender, ” My favorite Italian brunch cocktail has to be The Bicicletta, as much for the name as the way it goes downthis drink made of Campari/ white wine and Italian club soda gets its name from the old Italian men who would wobble and swerve on their “biciclettas” (“bicycles”) on their way home after having one too many!”
