Brunch in Boston
Brunch is back! On second thought did it ever go away? Admittedly, late fall and winter are ideal brunch season - long, late Sunday ( or Saturday) mornings, with a collection of friends, maybe a newspaper (or your phone), and a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa - your choice. Point of fact the above ingredients are available year-round throughout Boston, so you can brunch your way through the whole year.
Menus for this no man’s land meal - somewhere between breakfast and lunch - run the gamut from bacon & eggs to vegan specialties to classic eggs benedict, often offered with non-classic twists. Some offer boozy pancakes - others live jazz for easy listening. Choices include a full buffet, prix fixe, or a la carte. One invites you to wear your pajamas, another only serves chocolate in every conceivable shape and form, some include a DIY Bloody Mary bar and many re-fill the caffeine at no cost in sympathy to the night before…
