Forno Rosso Pizzeria Napoletana, located in the West Loop, is now serving brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Created by owner and chef Nick Nitti, guests can enjoy brunch items like a veggie breakfast pizza or pancakes topped with mascarpone and Amarena cherries, both made in Forno Rosso's wood-burning oven. Other highlights include the Uova in Purgatorio with three cage-free eggs and onions in a spicy San Marzano sauce served with toasted ciabatta and the Nutella French Toast with Funks Grove Maple Sirup, Nutella, bananas and mascarpone.
Guests can also indulge in brunch cocktails like Frosé (Cote des Roses Rosé, raspberry sorbetto, fresh raspberries; $12), Pesca Bellinis (peach puree, Mionetto prosecco; $8), Mimosas (fresh squeezed orange juice, Mionetto prosecco; $8), and Bloody Marys made with a house San Marzano tomato blend ($10). Forno Rosso will also offer a bottomless mimosa option for $20 per person.
To celebrate the start of brunch, every Sunday through September 11, all patrons who dine-in for brunch and fill out an entry form will be entered to win a pair of airline tickets to Italy (limit one entry per guest per visit). The winner will be announced on Sunday, September 11.
Weather permitting, guests will also have a chance to play beer pong for $10 per team on Forno Rosso's 60-seat patio, which spans the exterior of the restaurant on Randolph Street.
