Washington, DC – This Sunday, Foggy Bottom’s newest modern Italian restaurant, Aperto will Debut Brunch Service complete with a Live Jazz.

Chef Luigi Diotaiuti’s contemporary Italian brunch features a unique cured meats and cheeses course with specialties including house-made duck and lamb prosciutto, chicken liver mousse and Shenandoah Peaks Cheddar. The shareable course is $15 for three items or $25 for five items.

Aperto’s a la carte entrees include brunch classics and distinctive hearty and traditional Italian dishes, such as an open-faced egg frittata with seasonal vegetables and Tuscan-inspired steak and eggs with arugula and roasted potatoes, in addition to linguine carbonara with house-cured pancetta and house-made ravioli with burrata cheese and thyme.
