La Strada is well known for their Sunday brunches and bottomless Mimosas but the brunches became so popular that now they have them on Saturdays as well. Sundays the brunch is served from 11:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M and Saturday from 12:00 P.M to 4:00 P.M and the restaurant is located at 322 Westheimer. The crowd during La Strada’s brunches is very diverse as you can have families, crowds of college students or young professionals. The restaurant can get crowded very quickly but the atmosphere makes the place very enjoyable and fun.
The menus for the brunches are similar but have some differences that you will find one day and not the other. On the Saturday brunch menu you have an array of Panini’s which are served with a salad and a cup of soup such as the Soprano which is salami, ham, provolone cheese and olive taponade for $9.95 or the vegetable one which is zucchini, squash, Portobello mushroom, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese for a dollar less.
still on the Saturday menu they have “specialties” such as the Michael favorite which is chicken scaloppini with tomatoes and capers in a lemon butter sauce for $12.95, Pollo alla griglia, which is grilled chicken breast served with rosemary potatoes and spinach for $10.95 and shrimp parmesan which is shrimp with a side of fettuccine Alfredo and sautéed zucchini for $16.95.
On the Sunday menu you have another chicken dish called Pollo involtini which is a chicken breast stuffed with spinach, provolone cheese and sun-dried tomatoes with a marsala sauce on top for $14.95, or you can also order the Tuna London which is tuna served rare with pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes and a lemon butter sauce for $18.95 or the corn crusted fish of the day served with a chipotle sauce with rosemary potatoes and sautéed spinach for $17.95
Both weekend menus will also have breakfast favorites such as steak and eggs served with potatoes and fresh fruit for $14.95, or the Migas which are scrambled eggs with corn tortilla strips with pico de gallo served over an ancho-chipotle sauce for $10.95, fajitas and eggs which is
grilled marinated flank steak with pico de gallo for $12.95. More on the sweeter side of breakfast you can order gingerbread pancake topped with blueberry lemon sauce for $9.95 or the ultimate waffles which are waffles with Kahlua whipped cream and fresh berries for $10.95. Of course make sure to ask the waiter for their wine features or simply enjoy their famous brunch Mimosa’s or Bellini’s.
