Dallas Blogger Brunch recently had the privilege of brunching at Mille Lire with Dallas’ favorite Italian, Chef Giuliano! Mille Lire is a little piece of Italy, right here in Dallas- daily house-made pastas, traditional menu items, and of course, a prosecco mimosa bar to compliment the brunch menu! Chef G welcomed us into his beautiful space on Oak Lawn, on level 1 of the Centrum Building, complete with a red Vespa at the door to greet us! How stunning is this space?! It was such a pleasure to brunch with all of these beautiful influencers!
Our table at Mille Lire was extra special this month because we received gift bags from Dermatologist's Choice Skin Care! One of my favorite Dallas florists is Olivia from Olive Grove Design and she outdid herself with beautiful arrangements! Olivia always makes sure our brunch table looks amazing and this brunch was no exception! Simple color palette and blooms complimented the open and modern vibes of Mille Lire and, of course, made our table insta-worthy!
I love when we all order different menu items so I’m able to steal bites from everyone’s plates to try new dishes! The Italian Benedict (below) was cute AND delicious, and I'm not even normally a benedict fan!
I ordered the Rigatoni all' Amatriciana pasta (below) and realized that Mille Lire is one of those restaurants where you just point to the menu when the server asks for your order (haha!). I normally lean toward a more traditional brunch option (aka french toast), but the housemade pasta looked TOO good to pass up! Chef G was born and raised in Naples, Italy, so of course his menu reflects other traditional Neopolitan dishes like "Saltimbocca," a traditional pizza sandwich!
Each month, I love being able to bring a group of Dallas bloggers to a great local restaurant. This month, we also had the opportunity to work with Dermatologist’s Choice skin care to gift each of the attendees with products from their skin care line. Dermatologist’s Choice originated in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is now a national line- we were so excited to partner with them for this special brunch at Mille Lire.
