North Italia welcomes spring with new dishes and cocktails (MENU)

It sure feels like summer outside but it’s actually still spring, and with that comes new menus at restaurants all around town. There are plenty blooming in the city right now, but here’s one in particular.

North Italia, over at 2995 E. Skyline Dr., just introduced a taste of spring with four new dishes, some seasonal changes to regular menu staples, and nine new cocktails.

It’s a wonderful time to make some changes and reveal new additions since there are a few celebratory events on the horizon. You’ve got Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and then graduation — a perfect opportunity to toast to spring.

Check out the brand new dinner and brunch dishes below, and if you’re curious about the other additions, check out the Sunrise location’s full menu.
