Foodies went off schedule this month to enjoy Sunday brunch. We ventured to Via Italian Table located on Shrewsbury Street. Typically known for lunch and dinner, I was intrigued to see what the brunch menu offerings would be.
It was a beautiful day to sit on the patio, which is airy, comfortable, and has a welcoming feel. The wait staff was attentive, gave some great recommendations and super friendly.
The menu for brunch was expansive with many delicious items to choose from; it made it a challenge to decide.
I decided, to start my Sunday off right ordering the Smoking Mary – Tito’s Vodka, Dow’s 10 year Port, Smoked Tomato Purée and their Housemade Bloody Mary Mix, Garnished with a Piece of Applewood Smoked Bacon and a Sea Salt rim. This was a decent Bloody Mary, I am very critical of Bloody Mary’s, however the bacon was a great touch and the housemade mix was nice.
Personally, I gravitate towards something slightly traditional while at brunch so I decided to order the Prosciutto, Pesto, Parmesan Omelet with Lyonnaise potatoes with a side of Applewood Smoked Bacon.
This omelet was fantastic! Cooked perfectly, ample parmesan cheese within, the perfect amount of pesto and crispy prosciutto atop of the omelet. One critique, I wish it had a bit more prosciutto; however, the overall flavor combination was spot-on. The Applewood smoked bacon was cooked to perfection; portion size and quality of the bacon were excellent. Fantastic omelet and bacon!
I lieu of a dessert, I tried the Tangerine Dream – La Marca Prosecco finished with 44 North Tangerine Vodka & Fresh Lemon, this was refreshing and light, excellent drink.
Looking at all, the other dishes I knew I would need to try Via again for Brunch, I highly recommend.
