"OUR LOVE LETTER TO ROME"
Bread and Circus is inspired by the welcoming, friendly Trattoria’s of Rome where the menus are dictated by custom and comfort, the atmosphere is fun and friendly and the room is bright and warm. Our dishes are all inspired by takes on these longstanding recipes from Rome’s expansive empire with a few tweaks for our modern day take.
The name Bread and Circus comes from a Satirical poet’s writings in the second century: “Two things only the people anxiously desire – bread and circuses”. He was referring to the fact that the government was controlling votes and its population with food and entertainment. Almost two thousand years later and we are still using this phrase. We loved that it’s a nod to Roman culture and very à propos for modern times. We have also interpreted it to mean something else for Bread and Circus Trattoria – Dinner and a Show.
Join us in our intimate 40 seat dining room, especially at the Chef’s Bar and we’ll show you what we mean. Buon Appetito! Kelly & Jayme - Proprietors
