Sunset Grill & Tap for Sunday Brunch
Yesterday, Sunday, July 23, 2006, my girlfriend I had the Sunday Brewer’s Brunch, an off-the-menu style brunch, consisting of an entrée, accompanied by a complimentary muffin and pastry basket, homefries, fruit wedge, and Mimosa or Beery Mary (a bloody mary base mixed into a lightly flavored beer).
For my entrée, I chose the Eggs Benny, a variation on Eggs Benedict that consisted of two poached eggs and Canadian bacon, on Challa Bread, all covered with a red pepper Hollandaise sauce; and accompanied by steamed broccoli. I also had coffee. The broccoli was cooked to perfection--it was crisp and didn’t have the nasty taste that broccoli tends to have at times. The red pepper sauce added a nice mild but noticeably spicy (as in hot) kick. At first I thought the peppers would be of the red Bell Pepper variety, but the first taste proved otherwise.
My girlfriend had the Breakfast Quesadilla, consisting of scrambled eggs with cheddar and Monterey jack cheese, chopped scallions and tomatoes in a soft flour tortilla. Salsa and sour cream were accompaniments. I had a bite of hers and thought it was very good—definitely a strong contender for my entrée choice on a future return visit.
On the downside, while our waitress was attentive, she was a bit forgetful. We had to ask for our muffin and danish basket, and we never got our fruit wedge (which I forgot to ask for).
The brunch runs until 3:00 PM (I’m not sure when it starts), but when we went around 1:30 PM, there was a very minimal wait (less than five minutes). The crowd appeared to be mostly 20- and 30-somethings, but that’s to be expected considering the restaurant’s location (Allston/Brighton).
I consider this a worthwhile place to go, and will definitely go back.
