All-Purpose Pizzeria in Shaw will serve Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. until 2:30pm beginning on April 9.
Chef Mike Friedman and his team have created a variety of classic brunch dishes with creative Italian American twists. Dishes include The Continental, an assortment of house made salumi, seasonal fruit, cheese, pizza toast, butter & jam; Eggs Fra Diavolo (a twist on eggs in purgatory) with calabrian chiles, soft polenta, feta and basil; Crispy Fried Potatoes with a rich gorgonzola crema; the Tigelle ‘Egg & Cheese’ Sandwich with fried mortadella, egg, provolone and arugula; a Nutella Bomboloni (an Italian-style filled donut) topped with an airy whipped ricotta and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
During brunch, breakfast pizzas will join All-Purpose classics on the menu. The Cipriani has a smooth parmigiano fonduta, crisp bacon, egg, bright and crunchy frisee, and is topped with a tart mustard vinaigrette. The Balthazar (a pizza-style croque madame) has creamy gruyere, mozzarella and bechamel topped with a baked egg, prosciutto crudo and chives. Coffee drinks, speciality brunch cocktails and classic eye-openers will also be on the menu.
Sunday hours will be 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for brunch and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for dinner. All-Purpose will now be closed for lunch on Tuesdays.
