Bloody Mary Bar
If you love Bloody Mary’s like I love Bloody Mary’s, then consider a visit to Davanti Enoteca (30 East Hubbard). Their massive Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar makes an appearance on Saturday and Sunday between 10am-3pm. It’s worth getting up early to go.
For only $10, you can build the drink of your dreams. Plan on spending more, however, because you’ll need at least two trips through the bar to overcome decision paralysis. Why? The bar comes with conceivable ingredient you could possibly put into a Bloody Mary.
Choose between jars of meat straws, carrot sticks, or bacon-wrapped asparagus, and then skewer as many peppers, tomatoes, stuffed and unstuffed olives, or cheese as you wish. The back of the bar is lined with too many hot sauces to name. You even have your choice of salt.
My Bloody Mary Masterpiece was loaded with spicy mix, shrimp, bleu-cheese stuffed olives, as many stalks of celery as I could stuff into the glass, and two dashes of bacon salt and hot sauce. I half-expected the glass to topple over!
Pecan Praline French Toast
You need a few items to nibble while enjoying the Bloody Mary, right? Davanti has a lengthy selection of brunch dishes to try.
Highlights of the menu included a savory Pork Belly and Potato Hash with soft poached eggs that added a runny umami quality. Paired with a full-on slab of Thick-cut Bacon, dotted with tomatoes, it’s guaranteed to complete your morning.
On the sweet side, the French Toast with cinnamon butter and a bourbon-infused maple syrup will satisfy, but don’t stop there — the Davanti staff can reach into Glazed & Infused‘s kitchen for your favorites. The Maple Bacon Long John should be something everyone tries once, though I’m a particular fan of the lowly Vanilla Bean Glazed Doughnuts and Apple Fritters.
Love coffee? Davanti serves their own blend from Sparrow Coffee. No matter how you take your coffee, this is an incredibly good cup from an amazing local roaster. I’ll see you there!
