Saturday brunch at Marco's New York Italian, Fairmont
With so many great brunch options on a Friday, it sometimes feels that Saturday gets a bit neglected... Marco's Italian is shaking up the Saturday scene with this fresh family-style, jazzy brunch.
The brunch brings the table together with a selection of sharing platters: creamy burrata Salad, American Hot pizza, buffalo wings and crunchy quarter salad with silky blue cheese dressing as well as golden calamari.
All the choices my family would usually order - win! It was hard choice for the mains, do we go with the more indulgent option of mac and cheese or black truffle risotto, or stick to something more light and simple like the Mediterranean oven-baked cod? My recommendation: go with a bigger group and try all mains instead! As for choice of dessert, forget the rest, we're here for the Classic 1930's NY Knickerbocker glory.
While the food is good, it's the vibe that sets this brunch apart! It's stylish, vibrant and the jazz duo will have you tapping away to your favourite tunes, old and new. The choice of seating also offers something for everyone - the bar or lounge for a more laid-back lunch or you can choose the dining tables next to the pizza oven, overseeing the chefs at work.
