Before he opened Sole Mio Ristorante, Woodbury resident Angelo Montes won several awards for brunch as a chef at other restaurants.
“The place I was before was filled every Sunday,” he said.
Now, Montes is bringing brunch to Woodbury. Sole Mio will begin offering brunch ($15 adults, $7 kids 5-12, free for children 4 and younger) on Sundays starting Jan. 20.
Meanwhile, Lakes Tavern & Grill started its own Sunday brunch on Jan. 13.
The buffet brunch at Sole Mio, which opened at the Valley Creek Mall in October 2012, will feature an “American station” and an “Italian station,” Montes said.
While the Italian portion will feature pasta, cannoli and the like, Montes said, “We’re in America. That means we need to do what people expect—sausage, bacon, eggs, caramel rolls, potatoes.”
He was excited about bringing brunch to Sole Mio.
“It will be great for the community,” Montes said.
Reservations are welcome, especially for groups. For more information, visit the Sole Mio website.
Lakes Tavern & Grill
Lakes Tavern & Grill began serving its brunch buffet last Sunday.
“People in Woodbury are looking for that,” said manager Leah Fideldy. “And we’ve got a lot to offer.”
The restaurant, near Woodbury Lakes, may look at offering brunch on Saturdays, but those mornings are often utilized for pancake breakfasts for school groups or local nonprofits, Fideldy said.
