DiWine is Delightful

I had the pleasure of trying brunch at DiWine in Astoria this past weekend.  They recently began serving brunch on both Saturdays and Sundays starting at 11am.  The price fix brunch includes your choice of entree, a coffee and a cocktail for $13.  For an additional $6 you can get unlimited cocktails with your brunch.  There is a variety of entrees to choose from including eggs, paninis, salads and their fabulous brick oven pizzas.

My friend and I decided to split the Breakfast Pizza (eggs, tomatoes, mozzarella and house cured salmon) and the Capricossa Pizza (Pepperocini, mushrooms, eggs, and mozzarella).  Both were quite delicious and it was very enjoyable to go from one flavor to the other. We had also chosen the unlimited cocktails option and while I ordered my usual mimosa, my friend tried the Bellini.  I am tempted to get that cocktail the next time I go because you could see that these Bellinis were made with real peach puree. The wait staff did a great job of filling our drinks throughout our leisurely meal and we left feeling quite content since the portions were so filling – we even had some pizza to take home.  I look forward to going back for more visits to DiWine for their scrumptious brunch in the future.

DiWine also has an excellent dinner menu.  In addition to their brick oven pizzas, the focaccia bread appetizer is absolutely delicious and I am a big fan of their berry martini.  DiWine has an elegant, cozy setting with outside seating available during the nice weather.  It is definitely worth a visit whether is it for brunch or dinner.

DiWine is located at 41-15 31st Avenue, between 41st and 42nd Street in Astoria.
