Jacopo is now serving brunch
The newest addition of the Antonopoulous group of restaurants (Bevo, Maggie Oakes, Méchant Boeuf…) Jacopo, has been a great success since its opening last summer. After a short period of transition, they decided to extend their opening hours and launch a new brunch menu. Just like the restaurant itself, the brunch at Jacopo is 100% Italian-inspired with towers of home made pastries, biscottis, cannolis, ricotta pancakes and other sweet (and tasty) morning delicacies like “make your own Bellini kits”, speciality coffees, home made bacon and sausages.
Fugazzi Pizza is now open for lunch
Fugazzi Pizza has been a personal favourite since its opening. The power-team behind this “Brooklyn-inspired” pizzeria- with-an-attitude know what they are doing (Foiegwa, Barroco, etc.). Considering the place is always packed, the owners recently decided to open for lunch as well. Pointe Saint-Charles is welcoming more and more cool restaurant concepts, and who doesn’t want to have pizza for lunch ? Especially at Fugazzi.
