Lupetto, one of our Top 20 restaurants of 2023, will unveil its new brunch menu on Saturday, April 13. The playful, yet elevated Italian specialties, draw inspiration from traditional rustic hearth cooking.

Chef and partner Michael Berardino’s menu reflects on time spent living and cooking in southern Italy with a menu featuring highlights including grilled caciocavallo cheese with strawberry, rhubarb, and pickled mustard seed, various wood-fired pizzas such as a carbonara breakfast pizza with guanciale, pecorino, black pepper, and egg. There is also an Italian twist on eggs in purgatory with pancetta, smoked tomato, mozzarella, and chili.

Owner Mark Barak (La Pecora Bianca) brings everything that you love about refined Italian cuisine to a wide-ranging menu with both savory and sweet options, all while expertly using a wood-fired oven to impart a smoky finish to brunch classics. The warm and elegantly designed space is the perfect setting for a leisurely weekend meal. But the best seat in the house for brunch? The outdoor piazza seating with a full view of Madison Square Park set to open next month,

Brunch will be served starting April 13 Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30am - 4pm.
