Weekend brunch & a new patio make for a beautiful experience at Contigo (MENU)

"It’s a great way to welcome the season."

Spring has officially sprung at Contigo Latin Kitchen. Beginning on Sunday, March 6, the restaurant will be offering a brunch menu, which can be enjoyed indoors or outside in the new patio area, too.

Following its debut on Sunday, the brunch menu will be available every weekend (Saturday and Sunday) from 9 – 11 a.m. In the vein of the dinner menu, the brunch bites reflect the same flavors of Spanish fusion cuisine that’s made Contigo a popular dining destination in the Catalina Foothills.

The South American-inspired restaurant has gone through a few updates during the past year, including its new bar and lounge seating and the patio dining area — panoramic views of the city included.

Contigo owner Deb Tenino, who’s also the owner of Locale, believes that her guests will welcome weekend brunch with open arms (and an open appetite, too).

“This is something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and now with the addition of 50 seats in our beautiful new patio,” said Tenino. “We are excited to add brunch to our offerings. It’s a great way to welcome the season.”

The bunch menu is packed with loads of flavors, including dishes like Chilaquiles, Huevos Benedictos, and Tortilla Espanol.  The new additions fit in nicely with its lunch offerings like the Tostada Salmon, El Cubano, or the Short Rib Taco.

On top of that, Platos de Fruta and yummy pastry selections made fresh from the bakery at Locale, Contigo’s sister restaurant in midtown Tucson, will be on-hand, as well as a diverse selection of brunch cocktails, coffee drinks, and side dishes like house-made chorizo, Patatas Bravas, and more.
