Perbacco’s Free Pesche e Vino at Brunch
To help you soak up the last bits of summer this weekend--and for the month of September-- Perbacco's latest brunch treat is an Italian end-of-summer specialty, "pesche e vino." Made from the freshest seasonal stone fruit--local peaches--soaked and served a blend of Perbacco's selected red wines, it's a traditional (but little known) twist on sangria to help celebrate what's left of our long, sunny days.
Pesche e Vino will be served their housemade pesche e vino as a complimentary gift to brunch diners at Perbacco on Saturdays and Sundays starting this weekend and lasting through the month of September.
Perbacco is located at 234 East 4th Street, and brunch is served from 12 - 4 PM.For reservations, call (212) 253-2038.
Ostrich Eggs at Klee
First it was cheese made from his wife's breast milk and now it's ostrich eggs! Chef Daniel Angerer is not afraid to push the envelope in the name of creative cooking (that also happens to taste great).
All through September, Chef Daniel Angerer at Klee offers a brunch special of oven-baked scrambled ostrich eggs. The chef gets these huge orbs from Roaming Acres, a Jersey ostrich farm that also sells at the Greenmarket. He’ll pair the eggs with a rotating selection of ingredients (like Romano tomatoes and escarole for $15). If you haven’t had ostrich eggs, they taste more or less the same as chicken eggs — except the ostrich egg yolk and whites are the equivalent of nearly two dozen chicken eggs combined. Klee is located at 200 9th Avenue, (212) 633-8033.
