Parmesan Omelet from Via on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester, MA

Foodies went off schedule this month to enjoy Sunday brunch. We ventured to Via Italian Table located on Shrewsbury Street. Typically known for lunch and dinner, I was intrigued to see what the brunch menu offerings would be.

It was a beautiful day to sit on the patio, which is airy, comfortable, and has a welcoming feel. The wait staff was attentive, gave some great recommendations and super friendly.

The menu for brunch was expansive with many delicious items to choose from; it made it a challenge to decide.

I decided, to start my Sunday off right ordering the Smoking Mary – Tito’s Vodka, Dow’s 10 year Port, Smoked Tomato Purée and their Housemade Bloody Mary Mix, Garnished with a Piece of Applewood Smoked Bacon and a Sea Salt rim. This was a decent Bloody Mary, I am very critical of Bloody Mary’s, however the bacon was a great touch and the housemade mix was nice.

Personally, I gravitate towards something slightly traditional while at brunch so I decided to order the Prosciutto, Pesto, Parmesan Omelet with Lyonnaise potatoes with a side of Applewood Smoked Bacon.

This omelet was fantastic! Cooked perfectly, ample parmesan cheese within, the perfect amount of pesto and crispy prosciutto atop of the omelet. One critique, I wish it had a bit more prosciutto; however, the overall flavor combination was spot-on. The Applewood smoked bacon was cooked to perfection; portion size and quality of the bacon were excellent. Fantastic omelet and bacon!

I lieu of a dessert, I tried the Tangerine Dream – La Marca Prosecco finished with 44 North Tangerine Vodka & Fresh Lemon, this was refreshing and light, excellent drink.

Looking at all, the other dishes I knew I would need to try Via again for Brunch, I highly recommend.
