Brunch O’Clock: Quality Italian

Pasta and bellini carts—can you ask for anything more?

With Chicken Parmgiana in the shape of a pizza and nitro-powered negronis on tap, it’s no surprise that Quality Italian {241 Columbine Street, Denver; 303.532.8888} has quickly become a Cherry Creek favorite. Opened this past March inside the Halcyon Hotel, this modern steakhouse is a go-to spot for an elevated night out with prime cut of meats and touches of Italian flair thanks to Q1 Baked Clams and Burrata Cheesecake. But this steakhouse isn’t just for PM diners. With hearty housemade pasta and bellinis on wheels, brunch at Quality Italian should be on your list.

What to Eat

This melt-in-your mouth dish, Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Gnudi is topped with almonds and honey, dusted with Cacio Pecora from Fruition Farms.

Pasta for brunch—it’s definitely worth the carbs. The Italian restaurant offers two housemade pasta creations for midday risers including Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Gnudi and the savory Breakfast Risotto with mortadella topped with a sunnyside-up egg. For classic brunch iterations, order the Bananas Foster French Toast with Nutella spread or enjoy a truly elevated Steak & Eggs with your choice of filet mignon, dry-aged QI tomahawk rib steak or dry-aged bone-in sirloin, served with your choice of eggs.

Nothing says good morning like The Bellini Cart.

For a bubbly start to your morning, order up The Bellini Cart. This boozy cart on wheels has all the makings for a classic Italian apertivos, with house Prosecco and homemade juices and purées. The best part? Your morning bevy is crafted tableside. Choose from three different seasonal flavors including Grapefruit and Pomegranate, or go with something refreshing like the Cucumber Lime Classic.
