CHICAGO, IL, February 24, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/
-- In Italy, it is a tradition to spend Sunday afternoons with family and friends over a delicious, home-cooked meal. Celebrate this tradition in Chicago's River North with Sunday brunch at Osteria La Madia (59 W. Grand Ave, Chicago; 312-329-0400) 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every Sunday. Osteria La Madia's brunch menu from Chef Jonathan Fox features an innovative Italian take on classic brunch fare.
There's no better way to start your brunch than with a Bellini, so sip on Osteria La Madia's version with fresh peach puree blended with Nino Franco Prosecco ($12). Start your meal with anti-pasti such as Salmon Belly Crostini with goat cheese, caper berry gremolata and micro celery ($16); or a Brioche Cinnamon Roll with red wine currents, toasted walnuts, and bourbon icing ($7).
Then, choose from entrees like the Creamy Polenta with Laughing Bird Shrimp, Jonah Crab, Fresno chili, and arrabiata sauce ($15); or the Crispy Porchetta with roasted tomatoes, melted mozzarella, scrambled eggs and crispy potatoes ($13).
Any visit to Osteria La Madia would not be complete without one of its creative and flavorful wood-fired pizzas, and brunch is no exception. Order a signature pizza, such as the Pork Belly ($16) or Margherita ($14), or try one of the special breakfast pizzas, including the Tarte Flambe with Eggs, which includes bacon, onion and fontina ($16); or the Egg and Prosciutto Di Parma with white sauce, parsley, cacio cavallo and cracked black pepper ($18).
