Mattone Restaurant and Bar is celebrating local moms by hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch. Taking place Sunday, May 13, the brunch will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Buffett options will include: prime rib, carved ham, bacon, sausage, eggs, veggies, French toast, potatoes, and so much more. For adults, the price is $29.99 and for children, it is $15.99. Children under 4 eat free.
Mattone is co-owned by brothers, Franco and Vito Francese, and has been unveiling restaurant updates, including recently completed remodels to the inside that accentuate the signature brick oven. Franco recently appeared on The Mancow Morning show on 97.9 The Loop to talk about the updates to the restaurant.
The restaurant’s name is Italian for “brick” which has become the theme for the new look. While wood-fired ovens are common these days, there is a twist with what Mattone is doing that makes them unique. Mattone offers three delicious wood-fired sandwiches and the roll is made from scratch. Their signature, wood-fired Italian rolls were discovered by accident when testing out their rustic, brick wood-fired oven. The roll is made from their signature dough, that is made in-house, which is the same dough that they use for their pizza. They now offer a new wood-fired sandwich of the month. Mattone recently introduced their Italian take on the Canadian Poutine – garlic fries smothered in mozzarella cheese and homemade Bolognese sauce - on Lunchbreak with Dina Bair live on WGN’s Midday News.
