Contemporary Italian restaurant Maestoso, the highly anticipated project of acclaimed Chef Marco Maestoso and partner Dalila Ercolani that is open daily at 1040 University Avenue in Hillcrest, is now serving Sunday brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. to complement its nightly dinner service.

Available throughout the restaurant, including a wraparound patio accented with green foliage alongside and above tables, Maestoso’s brunch menu blends traditional fare with Chef Marco Maestoso’s contemporary creations. The end result is a menu comprised of breakfast pinsa topped with guanciale, pecorino cheese and eggs, majestic pancakes with berry “ragu” and vanilla whipped cream, blooming salad alla Romana in an eye-catching floral presentation, a 146.6 °F perfect poached egg with asparagus, cured egg yolk and buffalo mozzarella and more creative dishes.

Sunday brunch also features Maestoso’s unique passaggi concept wherein a cart of chef’s whims–usually small plates–is periodically rolled through the restaurant and offered to guests to enjoy with the brunch menu’s core items. Brunch passaggi will range widely; watch for sun-dried tomato deviled eggs, Le Bombette filled pastries and Chef Marco’s take on French toast sticks.

During brunch Maestoso will debut mid-day drinks including Mango Bellinis, Bloody Mary’s, sangrias and mimosas–the latter available as a bottomless mimosa option for $18 per person.
