Fabian's Italian Bistro brings back its Sunday brunch

brunch.jpg Between monthly wine-tastings on the last Wednesday of each month, and daily specials concocted by chef Tom Patterson (fried spinach, seasoned polenta fries), something's always going on at Fabian's Italian Bistro.

Now husband-wife owners Christian and Mercedes Forte are reopening their restaurant's outdoor patio for Sunday brunch (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), beginning this coming Sunday.

Last year, we loved the eggs Benedict Florentine (pictured), house-made Italian sausage link, and cinnamon custard-soaked brioche French toast.

Those dishes will return, along with a breakfast burger, house-smoked salmon, frittata Bolognese and seared flat iron steak with eggs, plus an expanded children's menu. Begin with a Bellini (Prosecco with peach puree) and end with one (or more) of eight desserts.

Also new: Dinner will now be served 4 to 9 p.m. Sundays. In exchange, the restaurant will be closed Mondays.

Fabian's is at 11755 Fair Oaks Blvd. in the Almond Orchard center, Fair Oaks; (916) 536-9891,
