CiboDivino Marketplace, a popular casual Italian eatery and shop in Oak Cliff's SylvanThirty, is now offering a new brunch menu. The exciting new menu features dishes crafted by Chef Daniele Puleo which can be paired with PULEO Prosecco cocktails by the glass or by the carafe. Available only on Sundays from 11am-3pm, the new offering brings just another good reason to visit the chic European marketplace and cafe.
As fall weather arrives, take advantage of the beautifully renovated Italian Terraza.
The new menu is inspired by the world travels merged with Chef Puleo's Sicilian roots. Each entree comes with a side of fresh fruit. I was torn between a number of options. The Colazione Toscana with Tuscan herb potatoes comes topped with eggs in an artichoke salsa calabrese and crisp onion cloud. Bistecca e Uova (Steak and Eggs) also taunted my palate. I ended up ordering the Uova Fritte (shown at top of page) with fried egg, crispy bacon, diced tomatoes, and sliced jalapeño, and was pleased with my decision.
My dining companion tried the pancakes stuffed with ricotta, which were a delicate sweet offering, fluffy with fresh ricotta and topped with fresh fruit, powdered sugar, and a warm syrup drizzle.
The Smoked Salmon Pizza and Grilled Polenta dishes also sounded like vey unique items I'd return for. The dishes we quickly devoured washed down well with outside the norm (for Dallas) brunch cocktails like the Hibiscus (Prosecco + cranberry juice) and the Rossini (Prosecco + strawberry puree). But don't worry, if you're totally basic all day e'ry day, the classic Mimosa is still on the menu, as is the Bellini. Each is available for $5 a glass of $22 for a full carafe, including an entire bottle of Prosecco.
If you happen to visit outside of brunch hours, don't fret, as the pizzas, pastas, meats, cheeses, and of course, wine, are all there for the taking (and yes, of course, consuming). Make yourself comfortable at a table and settle in for an experience that will make you feel less like you're in the hustle and bustle of Dallas, and more like you've just checked in for a tour of the Italian countryside.
