Dell’Uva’s chefs wake early to craft the fare depicted on the brunch menu and serve it amid vivid orange walls and paintings. The frittata mista ($5.50) packs a savory mélange of mushrooms, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes that team up with a dynamic duo of ricotta and feta cheeses. North Beach scrambles ($5.50) harbor italian ham and cheese fondue, and benedict Dell’Uva ($5.50) ferries poached eggs, ham, and roasted bell peppers with cheese fondue on toasted brioche to traverse tongues the way Marco Polo traversed Central Asia—by avoiding sharp objects. Pizzas holding zesty toppings also grace the midday munching scene. Bottomless glasses of mimosas ease the aridness of parched palates and present a 1/50-scale model of a tunnel from the restaurant’s backyard to China.
The brainchild of two native San Franciscan chefs, Dell'Uva sprung from a joint love of food and wine, inspired by travels around the world. After finishing culinary school, Juri McCorkle set off on a journey that carried his palate from Vietnamese markets to Swedish harvests, learning new cooking techniques and ways of saying "These are onion tears" along the way. Returning to the states with a renewed sense of epicurean adventurism, Juri teamed up with chef Jason Marcucci. Together, the two dreamed up a food and wine venue reminiscent of cozy cafés found abroad. The result was Dell'Uva, where an extensive selection of domestic and imported varietals transports palates across the globe, from Napa Valley to Argentina. Diners tuck into tapas from a menu focused on locally sourced ingredients, along with artisan cheeses and charcuterie-cured meats. Dishes pair with themed wine flights composed of vintages from Bordeaux, bubbly wines from France, Italy, and Napa, and dessert wines. Reclining on the outdoor patio or inside amidst the warm tones of the bar and dining room, guests snack on house-cured rosemary balsamic olives, rustic pizzas, and rich desserts.
