Cibo Divino launches Sunday Funday brunch with fantastic ricotta pancakes, brisket sandwiches


Who doesn’t like pancakes? Not the ones from a box, which are okay in a pinch, but the real ones, made from scratch using butter, whole milk and cake flour so they turn out light and fluffy? The folks at Cibo Divino beckoned us in to give their recently launched Sunday brunch a whirl. Theirs is the kind of a la carte brunch that offers those kinds of pancakes and a whole lot more.

Like brisket stuffed between two halves of a ciabatta roll, breakfast pizzas with smoked salmon, crispy bricks of pork belly sided with hash browns, deep glasses of prosecco, and squares of grilled polenta topped with Bolognese sauce, just like they do in the mountains of northern Italy. And those pancakes? Stuffed with ricotta cheese or bacon or blueberries.

Good way to start Sunday Funday.

1868 Sylvan Ave., Dallas, 214-653-2426.
