Waffles with espresso-mascarpone cream … poached eggs with fennel sausage, Parmesan and tomato gravy over soft polenta … the breakfast menu at the new Trattoria al Forno offers American favorites along with some classic Italian tastes. Opening day is December 18.
“Fresh ingredients are key,” says Chef Dee Foundoukis. You can get a classic American breakfast with bacon and eggs, but we wanted to offer some Italian tastes, too.” Like the frittata and the scrambled eggs with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. (Our favorite is the cured Italian meats with tomatoes, hard-boiled egg and cheese with fonduta, a warm, cheesy sauce for dipping bread.)
The spacious, family-friendly dining room is inspired by farms in the Italian countryside, with a big open kitchen and the smell of wood burning in the oven. It’s a terrific spot to fuel up for a day in the theme parks.
