Beginning this weekend, Ambrogio15 on North Pacific Beach’s popular Turquoise Street will usher in the Milan-style restaurant’s first regular brunch service. As of April 29, each Saturday and Sunday between noon and 3 p.m. guests can explore a brunch menu strongly influenced by the Milano culture of Ambrogio15’s Italian-born founders Giacomo Pizzigoni, Andrea Burrone and Luca Salvi.
Menu highlights include Scrocchiarella Nutella e Banana, a crunchy focaccia bread filled with Nutella and banana, topped with homemade whipped cream, served with maple syrup and best considered Ambrogio15’s Milan-style answer to traditional Nutella waffles and pancakes; Mini Calzone Salsiccia e Uovo, filled with San Marzano tomato DOP, mozzarella fiordilatte, imported Italian sausage and egg; and Pizza Prosciutto Cotto e Uovo, topped with mozzarella fiordilatte, imported prosciutto cotto and a sunny side up egg. Rounding out the experience is a selection of additional breakfast pizzas, breads and salads as well as seasonal organic sorbets from La Jolla’s Bobboi Natural Gelato. Menu prices range from $9 to $19.
During brunch, Ambrogio15 will offer mimosa, Bellini and Rossini cocktails for $7-8 and bottomless mimosas at $16 per person. Other brunch libations include more than a dozen San Diego craft beers and small batch, biodynamic wines from a consortium of small-scale wine makers in Italy called CoViBio, which represents six different regions of Italy and focuses on biodiversity, sustainability and natural agriculture.
Beginning immediately, dining duos can also take advantage of a brunch combo featuring choice of shareable entrée, two brunch cocktails and dessert for $34 – whether seated in Ambrogio15’s modern interior dining room or on the restaurant’s newly redesigned patio which now features added tables and foliage.
Reservations are available by calling Ambrogio15 at (858) 291-8650 or booking online at www.ambrogio15.com.
