WHO: Chef-Owner Luan Tota and his wife Dori Tota welcome families for a special holiday brunch. The BYOB is usually dinner only.
WHERE: Branzino, 261 South 17th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Just one block from Rittenhouse Square, behind 1706 Rittenhouse.
HOW: For reservations, please call 215 790 0103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The website is www.branzinophilly.com
WHEN: The same menu will be used for Easter Sunday, April 21 and Mother’s Day, May 12. Brunch service will occur on those days from 11:00 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.
The secluded brick patio will be available for seating- weather permitting.
The patio will be planted with bright spring flowers and fragrant herbs that are snipped for the cuisine.
Dogs are welcome to join the family on the patio.
Branzino will offer fresh squeezed juices and a house-made bloody Mary mix available for diners who wish to BYO and spike their beverages.
Very large parties can be accommodated, first come first serve, and three private seating options may be available on a first come first serve basis.
Guests may drop off decor so that the tables are pre-set with special photos, gifts or floral arrangements to make their experience feel personal.
MOTHER’S DAY ONLY: All moms will receive a special gift-a free bit of pampering with a blowout from Rittenhouse Square salon Jason Matthew.
