Postino WineCafé Kicks Off Second Annual Battle of the Bruschetta

Postino WineCafe’s iconic bruschetta is throwing down this summer with the second annual Battle of the Bruschetta, a summer-long, bracket-style competition between four limited-time bruschetta recipes.

Think four out-of-the-box innovative bites like:

  • French Onion (roasted garlic aioli, gruyere, braised white onions, melted brie)
  • Buffalo Cauliflower (buffalo cauliflower, cambozola ranch yogurt, celery, chives)
  • Philly Cheesesteak bruschetta (roasted garlic aioli, chopped steak, caramelized onion and peppers, fondue, chili oil)
  • Berry Mascarpone (blackberry mascarpone, graham cracker streusel, macerated blueberry, lemon, and powdered sugar)

Battle of the Bruschetta Returns

The competition begins July 1, with each “battle” running for 30 days at both Postino Little Italy and Postino Del Mar. The finals begin September 1, with the champion crowned on September 16.

During each battle, you can order two competing bruschetta flavors and vote on your favorite by texting “BATTLE” to 602 637 1510 for each round. The champion bruschetta will earn a permanent spot on the Postino menu this fall for all to enjoy!
