My mom came in for a girl’s brunch and we were trying to decide where to go. A deal came up to try brunch at Stecchino, an “Italian Burger Joint” in the neighborhood, from TravelZoo. I had been to Stecchino prior, for wine and appetizers, and I heard good things about the brunch but had never made the effort to go.
For $29, we got brunch for two with unlimited mimosas.
Mom was craving pancakes, so she went with the Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes made with whipped ricotta cream. These were fluffy and delicious, and obviously quite warm as the whipped cream slid right off.
I got a benedict with sausage. The sausage had a great flavor and the eggs were very well cooked.
Brunch also came with a lovely dish of fresh grapes and oranges. A nice touch.
And we had to get a side order of the rosemary candied bacon (in addition to the brunch deal). This bacon was awesome. It didn’t look all that crispy, but it was perfect. Great flavor, great texture, nice mix of herbs and sweet. I would go back just for the bacon.
The unlimited mimosas may have loosened us up a bit, but we both really enjoyed our brunch here. I’m not sure if I would have gone if not for the deal, but our meal there was definitely something I would return for and would recommend. Very good brunch.
