La Famosa’s new brunch service, spring menu debut

Weekend brunch service headlined by Huevos Revoltilo, Tostadas Francescas

La Famosa introduced a new brunch service and spring menu for 2022. The weekend brunch will be served between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Chef Joancarlo Parkhurst created two new dishes for brunch, which will also feature weekday breakfast winners and all-day pastries.

Tostadas Francescas are a creation of pan de agua stuffed with a guava and sweet cream cheese filling, soaked in vanilla custard. The French toast pieces are then griddled and served with fresh seasonal fruit and powdered sugar, priced at $14. A new Huevos Revoltillo livens up the menu, prepared with eggs, spam and cheddar cheese. The omelet-style dish comes with a a hash of fried potatoes, caramelized onions and red peppers, for $12.

A blend of cream of coconut and pineapple juice topped with sparkling French white wine creates the recently-introduced Pina Colada Fizz. The new cocktail, along with mimosas, are sure to be this year’s brunch-beverage staples at the Navy Yard restaurant.
