Life doesn’t get much better when you can sleep in on a Sunday, then rouse to join friends for a leisurely and delicious brunch. But life does get better when you get to have said Sunday brunch on a gorgeous October day in New York City’s West Village.
I was this lucky duck this past Sunday. Having spent Saturday night tasting cocktails in the city (more to come about those), I was thrilled to meet friends the next day at Dell’Anima, a fantastic Italian restaurant. The name translates to “of the soul,” which is a perfect description for their hearty, elegant dishes. Dell’Anima serves brunch family-style, and now I think there is no other way. Together you can ooh and ahh over the Farro, retell funny stories from the night before while passing the French toast, and soak up the remaining precious moments of the weekend over that last cup of coffee. Its bliss, I tell you. Bliss.
Dell’Anima’s Sunday Brunch Menu:
- Arugula (with shaved parmesan)
- French Toast
- Broccoli Rabe
- Farro (with chopped apples and cream)
Our Sunday Brunch Drinks:
- Bellini (with blood oranges rather than peaches)
- Bloody Mary (spicy and served with a pearl onion)
