Now you can grab Brigantessa's Southern Italian wood-fired pizzas and paninis while running weekend errands on East Passyunk Avenue.
Executive chef and owner Joe Cicala said his move to offer lunch service was due to the neighborhood's surge in popularity. "We noticed a lot of pedestrian traffic during the day on weekends. Also, the cuisine lends itself to a lunch crowd, pizza antipasti etc., so we decided to commit to lunch and also offer panini."
While the lunch menu is only available for weekends now, it's possible that may change. "We may start to extend the menu once we get our bearings," Chef Cicala said. "Perhaps offering more brunch-y items like wood oven-baked egg dishes etc. We'll see. Depends on how things go."
