Brunch at Hot Italian in the Public Market is a highlight of East Bay weekends, whether you go for the Italian mimosas, pizza topped with farm-fresh eggs, or just to catch up with good friends.
Based on the popularity of last summer's successful inaugural event, Hot Italian is bringing back its local DJ series, Brunch Beats, on Sundays from noon to 3pm, beginning April 2nd through June 2017.
Gather your friends, grab a blood orange mimosa caraffa and brunch pizzas including the Razolli (housemade sausage, caramelized onions, scrambled eggs, mozzarella), and chill to the turntable stylings of some of the Bay Area's most popular DJs.
