If you haven't been to Davanti Enoteca yet, or just need another reason to visit, here's two words to inspire: Brunch. Bloodys.
The Italian restaurant headed up by chef Peter DeRuvo has announced a Saturday and Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. which includes a ginormous Bloody Mary bar.
You had us at brunch -- or was it Bloody's? In any case, here's what diners can expect.
Featuring Italian-inspired brunch items, Davanti guests can choose from dishes like pumpkin ricotta pancakes, bistecca e uova (flat iron steak, an egg, potato hash, and salsa verde), and uovo in raviolo San Domenico (giant raviolo, ricotta, egg, and spinach.)
And Davanti's Bloody Mary bar looks to be a behemoth -- with enough accouterments to satisfy the fussiest of brunch-time imbibers. Plus, on Sundays, you can score a bellini for five bucks.
Here's Davanti's brunch menu. Since regular items are available as well, look for the symbol (two eggs, one cracked and one not) for dishes that are brunch-friendly.
