Di Bruno Bros. has caught truffle mania.

Di Bruno Bros. has caught truffle mania. From Dec. 6 through Dec. 11, all locations will be celebrating the mushroom. There will be in-store demonstrations, tasting sessions, cooking classes and a BYOB truffle brunch.

The pop-up brunch event will take place on Dec. 10-11 at the Rittenhouse Di Bruno Bros. upstairs café.

Here's what's on the menu:

• Truffle butter biscuits with duck bacon, fried egg, brie and house-made cabernet jam
• French omelet with Moliterno al Tartufo cheese
• Grilled flatbread with fresh mozzarella, arugula, speck, egg and shaved truffle
• Poppyseed waffles with ricotta, truffle honey and citrus zest

Plus, there will be truffle, salt-rimmed glasses to use at a full bloody mary station. Attendees just need to bring their own booze to complete the brunch drink.

What's brunch without booze? A sad breakfast.


No tickets are necessary to attend the truffle brunch, just show up ready to indulge.

Don't see why there's so much fuss over a fungus? Truffles are rare, especially the white ones. They are seen as a luxury addition to any dish, since each year there are fewer of them -- and of lesser quality.

The white ones are only available a couple of months of the year, almost exclusively from one part of Italy, where they must be foraged for by special pigs.

This season, Philadelphians have a chance to take home a huge Alba white Italian truffle, thanks to Di Bruno Bros. Just enter your name and email address here for a chance to win.
