All-Purpose Pizzeria to Offer Sunday Brunch Beginning April 9

From our friends at All-Purpose Pizzeria...

Shaw Pizzeria from the Teams Behind Boundary Stone and The Red Hen Will Open from 11 AM to 2:30 PM on Sundays, and Offer Brunch Classics with an Italian American Twist

All-Purpose Pizzeria in Shaw will serve Sunday brunch from 11:00 AM until 2:30 PM beginning on Sunday, April 9.

Chef Mike Friedman and his team have created a variety of classic brunch dishes with creative Italian American twists. Dishes include The Continental, an assortment of house made salumi, seasonal fruit, cheese, pizza toast, butter & jam; Eggs Fra Diavolo (a twist on eggs in purgatory) with Calabrian chiles, soft polenta, feta and basil; Crispy Fried Potatoes with a rich gorgonzola crema; the Tigelle 'Egg & Cheese' Sandwich with fried mortadella, egg, provolone and arugula; a Nutella Bomboloni (an Italian-style filled donut) topped with an airy whipped ricotta and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

During brunch, breakfast pizzas will join All-Purpose classics on the menu. The Cipriani has a smooth parmigiano fonduta, crisp bacon, egg, bright and crunchy frisee, and is topped with a tart mustard vinaigrette. The Balthazar (a pizza-style croque madame) has creamy gruyere, mozzarella and bechamel topped with a baked egg, prosciutto crudo and chives. Coffee drinks, speciality brunch cocktails and classic eye-openers will also be on the menu.

Sunday hours will be 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM for brunch and 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM for dinner. All-Purpose will now be closed for lunch on Tuesdays. For more information, visit
