Always up for fun food inventions, Giuseppe, Ornella's proud owner is rolling out some brand new goodies that'll be served during brunch. As we know, Ornella is the place to come to when you're in the mood for pasta, and after hearing that a hangover brunch pasta has been officially introduced, I'm totally going gaga. That, alongside a most non-traditional and intriguing cheese sandwich, and you've got yourself an unforgettable meal. Here's a better description of the two that will get you licking your chops.
Hangover Pasta - Homemade fettuccine cooked in milk (think Ornella's pasta latte) with bacon and a sunny side up egg on top with a drizzle of truffle oil. Wow, sounds like a heavenly combo, and one that I've never had before.
Ornella's Take on the Grilled Cheese Sandwich - Grilled cheese topped with anchovies, capers, brandy and cream sauce. To say this is decadent wouldn't do it justice.
Rumor also has it that Giuseppe serves the above-pictured Eggs Benni dish on (get this!) Italian lard bread. Now that's a must!
Hope to see you there! I'll be the one stuffing myself silly.
