Gusto’s Sunday brunch feast features a bevy of Italian dishes, including endless selections from the Antipasti Buffet, a choice of hot made-to-order A La Carte From the Kitchen dishes, sharable sides, a choice of dessert from the Sweet Endings offerings, as well as a choice of Fara Italian-roast coffee or fresh-squeezed orange or grapefruit juice—all for a mere $16.75 per adult. Brunch-only drink specials, including hand-crafted cocktails, provide the perfect accompaniment to Gusto’s Italian delicacies.

During Gusto’s Italian-style brunch, A La Carte From the Kitchen selections are each prepared once guests place their order, ensuring every chef-crafted dish is hot, fresh and made from scratch. Seasonal A La Carte From the Kitchen specialties include the French Toast with Marmalade & Strawberry Butter, a brioche dipped in cinnamon-egg custard, toasted, and served with housemade peach and currant marmalade and strawberry butter; and the Croque Madame with Mixed Greens, a comforting Italian version of the classic French sandwich, piled high with Nueske ham and gruyere, served on toasted whole-grain, dipped in béchamel, and topped with a fried farm egg.
