The newly opened “naughty little brother” to Little Italy’s Bencotto Italian Kitchen now offers a Milan-inspired brunch.
Mornings in Little Italy are a bit more delicious thanks to the new breakfast menu at Monello. Meaning “naughty little brother,” the sister restaurant of Bencotto now offers a full dine-in menu along with a notable to-go selection of pastries and breakfast paninis all made in-house. The authentic menu combines traditional sweet flavors from Milan and savory tastes from the U.S. with dishes such as custard-filled bomboloni, and eggs benedict with prosciutto, pesto hollandaise that pair perfectly with Italy’s number-one coffee, Illy Caffe. In cohesion with the nearby farmer’s market, brunch items are made with locally sourced ingredients. Don’t forget the cocktails—we love the Rossini made with Prosecco and strawberry basil puree Available Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 750 West Fir Street, Suite 102-B, Little Italy. 619.501.0030. lovemonello.com
