The Best Brunches in 18 Boston Neighborhoods
Brunch is everything you want in a meal: carbs, casual dress code, reasonable prices, and day drinking. So where best to ward off the Sunday scaries? While the city is awash in hollandaises, some brunch menus elevate the midday meal to event dining status (specialty cocktails may have something to do with it). Who cares if eggs are suddenly bad for us again? Here is the definitive guide to the best brunches in every Boston neighborhood -- and trust us, every last one is worth traveling for (even on the Green Line).
Buttermilk & Bourbon Proof that fried chicken works any time of day Jason Santos wants you to have fun at brunch, dammit, even if that means serving you soft-serve ice cream before noon. And that’s just one of his New Orleans brunch menu’s many quirks -- when’s the last time you made a midday meal of crawfish boudin croquettes and house smoked rainbow trout dip. Traditionalists have plenty of options as well, from the apple cider French toast to the country egg scrambled skillet (though Santos makes his hollandaise with hot sauce); whatever else you eat, just be sure to order some fried chicken for the table.
