Macchialina's Dim Sum-Style Brunch Adds Bottomless Cocktails

Jen Chaefsky celebrated Mother's Day at Macchialina, which was fitting given that the rustic Italian eatery is her lovechild. For the special day, chef Michael Pirolo did things a little differently. Rolling carts stacked with minuscule bowls of homemade pasta and other hot and cold delicacies darted in and out of the kitchen and around the dining room. The Italian dim sum-style brunch offered more than 15 items on rotation, allowing guests to choose during several drive-bys. Prices ranged from $3 to $6, depending upon the plate, making the feast inexpensively attractive.

Given the success of the unique brunch, Macchialina will likely offer it more often. To see what you missed -- and to ensure you don't miss this dim sum-style brunch the next time it rolls around -- check out the photos after the jump.
