Bar Sugo introduced their Brunch menu last Sunday. On the menu are their usual offerings, including meatballs and pizza, plus an Italian take on the brunch classics:
- “bacon and eggs” made with crispy pork belly and sunny-side up eggs
- “eggs benedito” – arancini, sausage and poached egg
- sausage & broccoli rabe omelette with provolone and spicy tomato
- baked egg with polenta and grana padano cheese
- goat cheese frittata with onion, lamb sausage and cauliflower
- pane perduto (french toast) with local maple syrup, allspice butter and blueberry compote
Craving Eggs Benedict, we tried Chef Pat’s version of the brunch classic dubbed “Eggs Benedito.” Instead of poached eggs sitting atop English muffins, they rest on two pieces of arancini, Italian fried rice balls. After cutting into the eggs, the yolk runs into the rice balls and gives it a rich, savory taste.
Dee is a big fan of omelettes so she had the sausage and broccoli rabe omelette. The omelette was perfectly cooked. Each bite was delicious – filled with each component – crumbled sausage, broccoli rabe and melted provolone cheese. On the side was homemade spicy tomato sauce, a perfect companion to the omelette.
To drink we had a round of their spicy Bloody Mary. The drink had quite a kick to it. We like it! They also offer unlimited unlimited Bellinis for $15. Brunch starts at 11, so you could get pretty saucy by early afternoon.
