3 Best Brunch's in Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Wed, Nov 04, 2015

brunchCheck out one of these 3 brunch restaurants, compilied by Thrillist: "Who doesn’t love brunch? Nobody, that’s who. There’s absolutely nothing better than waking up on a weekend and realizing that the only thing you have planned is eating a massive amount of bacon. While still drinking!"

1. The Breakfast Club | Allston

"A little off the beaten path down Western Ave, this popular John Hughes-themed diner serves dishes based on the eponymous movie. We like the Basket Case (two eggs any style with home fries/toast AND your choice of meat or French toast/pancakes) and the Bomblette. Factor in a million flavors of milkshake and a host of sweet seasonal specials (like this month’s pumpkin coffee cake French toast), and you should be all set. Plus, parking is always free on the surrounding streets."

2. Bistro du Midi | Back Bay

"If you’re going for more fun than fancy, Back Bay Harry’s monthly Super Fan Brunch is a worhy way to wrap up the weekend. The themed brunches celebrate pop music icons from Beyoncé to Michael Jackson (with upscale menu items specially made to match) and $35 gets you a glass of champagne (and coffee), a huge shareable appetizer for the table, a main course, and dessert -- all while “Thriller” plays in the background and fully-costumed women at the next table sing along. (We left with confetti stars stuck to our sweaters, and we’re not sorry.)"

3. Pomodoro | North End

"This itty bitty North End restaurant has a loyal following in the area for its authentic Italian dishes like pane al forno (toast with date butter and rum glaze) and breakfast risotto with seasonal fruits and honey. Other more lunch-like items, such as panini and classic zuppa di pesce, also pepper the menu. Just go early if you want a seat -- it fills up quickly."

Brunch Outdoors

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sat, May 30, 2015

"What's better than brunch? How about eating brunch outside on a perfect Summer day as you enjoy the fact that it isn't August yet and you aren't sweating through all of your clothing? Why yes, that IS better. Here are a few great outdoor brunches to enjoy this weekend, thanks to Thrillist.

The Sinclair | Harvard Square

"The Sinclair has a killer deck and an equally killer brunch to go with it, starting at 11am (or whenever you should happen to wake up). An absolute must is the Bacon Bloody Mary with Fire Puncher vodka, roasted tomato, and house pickles... oh, and a bacon kebab on top. Food-wise, they nail both the sweet and savory ends of the spectrum (spicy eggs Benedict, baked french toast), but why not go for everything at once with the Waffle Burger: grass-fed beef on a buttermilk waffle bun appointed with shallot jam, applewood bacon, cheddar, a fried egg, and maple syrup, served with greens or tots. So, tots"


Stephi's on Tremont | South End

"Kick your useless belt to the curb on the well-shaded patio at Stephanie Sokolove’s Tremont outpost with her comfort-food-gone-mad creations and build-your-own Bloody Mary options (complete with clipboard). From 10am-3pm, chow down on the salty pretzel-crusted crab cake Benedict doused in whole grain mustard hollandaise. Or maybe try the stick-to-your-ribs meatloaf hash swimming in gravy and topped with fried eggs. Better yet, head way South for the arepa con chorizo."


The Living Room | Waterfront

"Every Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday (11am-3pm), Chef Edlbauer escorts you to your happy place with belly-busting fare and crafty cocktails. Enjoy people watching and tourist snarking at Columbus Park from the ample patio and treat yourself to chicken and waffles (self-explanatory), Buffalo chicken dumplings (also pretty clear), and a hefty order of loaded huevos rancheros served on a mod-style lunch tray... take THAT cafeteria lady."

#258 New Orleans Jazz Brunch

Posted by Tara Peterson on Sun, Jan 09, 2011

hampshirehouseWarm up with brunch before you drop your pants on the subway....

Catch Sunday brunch, or live jazz seven nights a week. A fire crackles on the hearth, the staff is friendly, and several bespectacled moose heads add a quirky touch. Maybe the older crowd favors the music that's quiet enough to talk over, or the moderate prices. The steak was juicy and cooked as requested and the baked potato was standard.

At the The Hampshire HouseThe Hampshire House, 84 Beacon St.
