Bottega Americano Tacks On Brunch

Bottega Americano makes big additions to its menu since opening this summer.

A few months after its much-anticipated debut in East Village, Italian eatery Bottega Americano is making its biggest change yet: adding weekend brunch into the mix.

The 8,000-square-foot "Eataly-esque concept" in the base of the LEED-certified Thomas Jefferson School of Law encompasses a retail component and an all-day eatery with interactive food bars.

Bottega's brunch, served from 9am-3pm on weekends, will kick off on Nov. 1 as the "the Italian way to cure your Halloween hangover," the restaurant tells Eater.

Keep the party going (and the costume on, if you wish) with a complimentary mimosa on Nov. 1 if customers make reservations now.

Unique brunch dishes will include braised slab bacon pizza, roman chilaquiles, lobster BLT, power frittata, slow cooked faro oatmeal, and artichoke benedict.

Bottega's been drawing long lines and national attention but has no expansion plans just yet.

Happy hour recently launched, running from 3-6 pm daily in the bar and lounge. Items include $20 wine carafes, $10 pizza and $5 bruschetta.
