Whatever your stance is on brunch, you must know that I love it and I’m always hunting for the best of the best. Sometimes you got to have those “treat yo self” moments and dig into a brunch that will leave you wanting more.
Recently, INK Entertainment opened up their newest restaurant called Città located right down in Hunter’s Landing of CityPlace. While there never seems to be much around here (shout-outs to the Dairy Queen close-by), INK opening up one of their fantastic eateries in this neighbourhood is cause for celebration.
The restaurant is a rustic Italian playground with chef Ben Heaton (formerly of The Grove) taking over in the kitchen. The space is modern and majestic with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in soak in the sun, black & white checkered floors and opulent chandeliers.
But what about the food? The brunch menu is large and sprawling with many items to choose from including pastries, mains, pizzas and numerous side dishes. Some of the dishes that really hit it out of the park for me were the Burrata Crostini (wood roasted tomato + onion agro dolce), Patate Alla Carborna Pizza (Bechamel + potato + pecorino + egg + guanciale + black pepper) and the Duck Eggs Benny (Tomato + foccacia + peperonata + hollandaise). Don’t forget to order a side of house-cured thick-cut bacon. Trust, you won’t be disappointed. Dishes on the brunch menu range from $5 (appetizers) to $19 (mains, pizzas).
If there are any parting words I can leave you with, it is to save room for dessert. These filled bomboloni doughnuts were an absolute delight paired alongside freshly made cannolis. Typically, I’m not a sweets person and I couldn’t resist.Ben Heaton, brunch, Citta, CityPlace, Doughnuts, Ink Entertainment, Italian, toronto, Where to Eat Toronto
