Bruschetta enthusiasts will once again cast their vote for a chance to secure their favorite seasonal bruschetta a permanent spot on the Postino menu

July 1 – September 15

 Postino WineCafé’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) and Philly Cheesesteak bruschetta (roasted garlic aioli, chopped steak, caramelized onion and peppers, fondue, chili oil). For those with a sweet tooth, the Berry Mascarpone is made with blackberry mascarpone, graham cracker streusel, macerated blueberry, lemon, and powdered sugar. 

The competition begins July 1, with each “battle” running for 30 days. The finals begin September 1, with the champion crowned on September 16. During each battle, guests can order two competing bruschetta flavors and vote on their favorite by texting “BATTLE” to (602) 637-1510 for each round. And the champion bruschetta will earn a permanent spot on the Postino menu this fall for all to enjoy.

All competing bruschetta were masterfully created by Postino Executive Chefs who are now sharing their recipes with Postino lovers nationwide. Last year, over 28,600 votes were recorded across the country, crowning ‘Mexican Street Corn’ the winner, and earning it a spot on the current Postino menu.
