Looking for a brunch place in the Boston area; been to the Neighborhood Restaurant in Somerville (highly recommended, especially in the summer) and various dim sum places. Any new, unusual, or quintessentially New England (and affordable) brunches in town?
The Blue Room in Cambridge has been getting raves from all and the word is out. It's quite good but hard to get in without an advance reservation.
I've always enjoyed Appetito in the South End but haven't been in a while.
Geoffrey's on Tremont in the South End is good for brunch. A step up from the Neighborhood decor-wise but still cozy. Also, the brunch at Henrietta's Table in the Charles Hotel is surprisingly good but you can't get past the fact it's a hotel in terms of the atmosphere. One hint is to go during the week when it's less full. On the cheaper but still good side--Johnny's Luncheonette outside Harvard Square and Soundbites in Ball Square somerville.
