Third time’s a charm, isn’t that what they say?
Well, in the case of the latest relaunch of the classic Dallas eatery, Sfuzzi, we think this one’s off to a fantastic start. And two weeks ago, they launched brunch service so we had to check it out.
We brunched at the new Henderson Avenue location (formerly Capitol Pub) on Sunday and it was near perfection. From their famous, bellini-esque original Frozen Sfuzzi and Bloody Mamas made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to all Italian-skewed breakfast fare, we were in paradise.
Service was spectacular and the food came out hot and fast.
Must-tries for your visit include the Sausage Egg McSfuzzi (a clever riff on a Mickey D’s breakfast sandwich—and a real bargain at $10), the fully loaded Breakfast Calzone, the Breakfast Pizza (they’re known for their killer pies, after all), and Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes for dessert.
Our favorite dish of the day was the Sfuzzi Benny, a great riff on the classic. Instead of ham or Canadian bacon, they use a high-quality prosciutto. But what really makes the dish a standout is the addition of pesto on the toasted English muffin. That tiny bit of herbaceous freshness really changes things in a memorable way.
Best of all, their mimosas feature Ruffino Prosecco instead of that nasty Wycliff so many restaurants use. (Pro tip: Always ask if a restaurant serves Wycliff and avoid it if you can unless you want the worst hangover of your life the next day.)
Brunch happens every Saturday and Sunday, so you have your choice of days to visit.
Or maybe you’ll be up for both.
