D.C. brunch-goers will soon have a new spot to add to the list of upscale restaurants with bottomless mimosas: Fabio Trabocchi’s Casa Luca will be open for Sunday brunch starting on Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Featuring Trabocchi’s signature Italian flare (Fiola, Fiola Mare) in a more casual, family-style setting, Casa Luca is named for the Trabocchi’s 11-year-old son Luca, who helps out in the kitchen sharpening his skills as a budding chef and restaurateur.

The Chinatown/City Center restaurant has been open since 2013. The brunch will feature hearty fare such as porchetta on rye, Italian-style vegetarian omelets, homemade stromboli and a plentiful bread basket by Executive Pastry Sous Chef Claudia Bruni.  

For $32, guests can order the Casa Luca Signature Brunch: an appetizer, main course, dessert and bottomless libations, a choice between bar manager Robin Miller’s signature “Gazpacho” Bloody Mary, Sicilian Mimosa, or Casa Luca Sangria. For lighter fare, “Maria’s Light Brunch,” $26, comes with a main course of parmacotto ham, stracchino cheese, rye crescia, yogurt, fruit and a mocktail of choice. All items are also available a la carte.
