This Italian eatery has several locations including one in San Diego. The River North outpost offers all three meals, which may appeal to our athletic-minded travelers since it is located in the same building as a Courtyard by Marriott hotel! Inside it is fairly casual and comfortable with hardwood floors, exposed brick, unique chandeliers, and fresh flowers.
Breakfast isn't anything special, but the variety is pleasing. An egg white frittata, hash, steak and eggs and omelets are options along with fresh fruit, granola, oats, donuts, bagel and lox, French toast and buttermilk pancakes. Lunch and dinner are really more the focus. Lunch offers starters like brushette and cauliflower steak. Other highlights include the shrimp pasta, arugula salad, grilled portobello sandwich, and a imported tuna, arugula and lemon sandwich. Dinner takes the food up a notch with more starters and pastas and a selection of entrees such as seared octopus, grilled salmon, daily fish special and a grilled flat iron steak.
Open daily for all three meals. Weekday breakfast starts at 6:30a and 7a on the weekends. Weekend brunch menu offered 10:30a-2p.
