Osteria La Madia, located in River North, offers an Italian brunch menu every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and now Chef Jonathan Fox has added a $22 prix fixe option, which includes the choice of any antipasti, any brunch entree or wood-fired pizza, and a flute of prosecco or bellini. With that, each table receives a basket of mini-donuts from sister restaurant, Firecakes.
Fox's brunch menu features an array of antipasti (brioche cinnamon
roll; smoked salmon; compressed quince), breakfast entrees (fried egg
bruschetta; crispy pork belly; house-cured brisket sandwich), breakfast
pizzas (fingerling potato and egg yolk; egg and proscuitto di parma),
signature pizzas (triple pepperoni; pork belly; 3 hour roasted grape; carbonara), sides and smaller plates (Nueskies applewood smoked bacon; crispy potatoes and aioli; toast and olive oil). Brunch
cocktails are plentiful, from negronis and Italian pisco sours to large
format, mix-your-own mimosas and bellinis.
