Owned by restaurateur Besim Kukaj (owner of 10 Italian restaurants including Maria Pia, Luna Piena, and Gallo Nero, all of which we have visited), recently opened Cara Mia 2. Since 1997, its sister restaurant Cara Mia has been offering their customers delicious and creative Italian cuisine. After 17 years of restaurant experience, Besim Kukaj has created an “at home” Italian feeling for your dining experience. Meaning “My Beloved,” Cara Mia is an ever-popular Midtown institution that according to New York Magazine “radiates the warmth of Southern Italy.” The rustic-chic dining room is like a home away from home, with its gorgeous tiled floors, craftsman-style wooden tables, candlelit ambiance anchored by brick walls and vintage photographs, and hundreds of wine bottles displayed along the walls.
They are bringing in a jazz singer by special request of The Single Gourmet! And not only do we have a 2-course menu for brunch, but we also have 90 minutes of unlimited brunch drinks (choice of champagne, Mimosa, Bellini, Bloody Mary, house red/white wine), and a lot of food to choose from. Our first course is salad, choice of: Fruit Salad and Vanilla Yogurt, Insalata Caprese, Caesar Salad with chicken (available with Steak or Shrimp), and Insalata Monte Bianca. For the second course, you can choose from 14 different brunch entrees (mostly egg dishes, I don’t have room to list them all, the list also includes an amazing burger) or 4 pasta entrees: Spaghetti alla Carbonara (Pancetta, eggs and pecorino romano cheese); Penne alla vodka (Vodka pink cream sauce, peas, mushrooms); Capellini Primivera (mixed vegetables, garlic, white sauce); Pasta Aglio e Olio (Spaghetti, Garlic, extra virgin olive oil and crushed Peperoncini, sunny side up egg).
ALL menus listed are subject to change without notice due to restaurant supply.
