Dolce & Chianti Has Added Brunch

DOLCE & CHIANTI, who I wrote about in September, have now added on a Saturday and Sunday brunch. This elegant restaurant, with the Lemon accents everywhere, treated me to a brunch today. With their beautiful front room decorated with a snow white and gold Christmas tree, the atmosphere is perfect for anytime.

Owner Inga Davidian, along with her chef Risson Medina were there to make sure every detail was to perfection. Inga currently owns two restaurants in the Kirkland area of Washington state.

Dolce & Chianti is the most beautifully decorated restaurant I have seen in a long time.  Fresh, bright, beautiful blue colors and a taste of “Lemon” throughout. Yes, lemon is everywhere. On the walls, in photos, in bowls, and it brings such a wonderful feel. Look at the photo below, all plates are lemons.

The brunch items I tried included a Blueberry Spinach salad, with plenty of toasted sliced almonds, feta cheese, mint and a maple vinaigrette, and an Italian sausage Frittata with onions, mushrooms, and Mozzarella. There were large portions of the Burrata Avocado Toast with avocado mouse, red onions, cucumber, baby heirlooms, house vinaigrette, greens, and toasted Pine nuts. Not to be outdone, we finished off with Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with toasted pine nuts, lemon mint whipped cream, powered sugar, and blueberries. You should not miss this fine place, and as I said before dinner is not to be outdone in any Las Vegas restaurant. 

The restaurant was open for only a few months before everyone shut down, but now it is back to life with new dishes. I attended the party, where I got to sample some wonderful bites alongside a terrific band.

Regularly on the menu is Summer Tomato with angel hair, fresh summer tomatoes, basil, and herbs; Seafood with mussels, prawns, Calabrian chili butter, garlic, pasta, and light tomato; Gnocchi al Fungi; Eggplant Parmesan; Veal Milanese and Seared Salmon to name a few. Lemon Ricotta cheesecake Salted Caramel Budino, and Espresso Panna Cotta are delicious finishing touches. They have plenty of shareables, including fresh mussels, Calamari Fritto, Marinated Olives & house pickles, or Jumbo Prawns. With salads and pizza, there is no end to the menu.  

A highly praised selection of liquors and wines are at the round bar, and there is evening music Tuesday through Saturday. Located on the West side at 4275 S. Durango, please make reservations. Great place for a wedding dinner.  702-749-6534. #Chianti
