brunch

Want to have a relaxed stylish brunch on an expansive sunny patio ? Want to have a relaxed stylish brunch on an expansive patio while indulging in mouth watering food choices and bottomless drinks? I am sure your answer is a resounding YES, so next weekend head out to Siena Tavern Restaurant. Located in the former China Grill space on Washington Ave and 5th street, Siena Tavern is a force to be reckoned with. The baby of season 5 Top Chef Fan Favorite Fabio Viviani, Siena Tavern has not only become a popular dinner and happy hour choice, it now offers a weekend brunch.
Guests can sit on the beautiful patio or inside their stylish dining room. Bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Mary’s are available for a flat fee. Siena Tavern decided to take some classic dishes and put unique high end culinary touches to them. Take their eggs benedict. Most of these resemble a fast food egg sandwich with English muffins. Siena Tavern decided to use mortadella. What is mortadella you ask ? It is made from very finely minced high quality pork and cubes of fat “sprinkled” inside. They use a brioche bun as the base with a pesto hollandaise sauce. We also had a caramelized waffle. Accompanied with oak barrel aged syrup and Nutella butter. No, you do not need a eye doctor appointment. NUTELLA.BUTTER. Let that sink in. It tastes as good and decadent as it sounds. Indulge in their truffle scrambles eggs. Roasted wild mushrooms and truffle oil. Oh..it also comes with goat cheese toast. Goat. Cheese. Toast. I think by now you get the picture. Many different dishes and all delish. If you have only been there for dinner, it is time to include their brunch in your brunch circuit tour. We also had the pleasure of snapping a quick pic with Fabio in the flesh. He was gracious as usual. Go to brunch at Siena Tavern. You can thank me later.

Seeking: a grown up happy hour happily devoid of frat boys and full of quality food and hand crafted cocktails. The Answer: Siena Tavern’s new happy hour.

This new powerhouse of a new restaurant has already proven itself to be the spot for those who want a top notch italian dinner with inventive and classic dishes by executive chef Fabio Viviani. Hubby and I visited last week to see what all the fuss was about. The cocktails are curated by the crew at the renowned Broken Shaker Bar. Moscow Mule, house sangria and take on a Limoncello called…Cocello was delicious. What are you washing down with these cocktails ? How about a new East Coast vs West Coast feud ? OF OYSTERS ! Siena Tavern has a plethora of bi coastal oyster choices..they vary depending on the time of year but be assured they are as fresh as oysters can be. Time to get your food and drink on.

Available daily ( Saturday and Sunday included) between 6 to 8 p.m. Appetizers like Hamachi and Tuna Crudo for $7. Frito Misto,Salami or cheese boards are also listed. We had the Prosciutto Pear pizza for $9. Our waiter went into detail to explain how they had to revamp their dough recipe from what they use in their Chicago restaurant. Miami humidity is no friend of dough. Having managed a famous pizzeria in Baltimore, Md , I judge pizza by it’s dough. Siena Tavern gets an A+. Combine that with the $2 oysters, $7 house cocktails, glass of wine of the day and drafts for $4 and you have a really happy happy hour.

We finished our happy hour with a flight of gelato and of course their infamous Bombolini donut like pastry.

Happy hour can be enjoyed at or around the bar and also on their beautiful terrace.
