CICCHETTI (chick-KET-tee), the new Italian eatery located at Erie and St. Clair Streets, is rolling out a new weekend brunch menu on April 12. Helmed by Chicago chef Michael Sheerin, a Food & Wine Best New Chef in 2010 and a veteran of New York’s Jean-Georges and wd-50 and Chicago’s Blackbird and Trencherman, CICCHETTI features small plates with a Venetian accent—a twist now being applied to brunch.

“Everyone is in for a real treat with CICCHETTI’s take on weekend brunch,” says legendary Chicago restaurateur Dan Rosenthal, owner and co-creator of CICCHETTI/Sopraffina Marketcaffè. “In the five months since we opened our doors, the reception has been amazing. We are conveniently located next to Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile in heart of Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood. And, Chef Sheerin continues to exceed expectations.”
