Brunch this Sunday

I am going for brunch this sunday with a friend and I wanted to get some recommendations on where to go. We would prefer to stay in Back Bay, but price is not an issue

We were going to do stephanies, but of course they have no reservations available. I have narrowed to:

Great Bay
Aujourd'hui at the Four Seasons

I hav eaten at sonsie and great bay, but have yet to go to Bouchee or the Four seasons. Do you have any other good recommendations? Or is one of these a better option than the others? We are open to anything-very eclectic pallets!

Thanks so much for your help!

        Ditto, it's a buffet with a nice mix of traditional Western-style dishes and more exotic Asian-inspired ones.

      2. I like Aquitaine and their wonderful bloody mary's.

        1. A very fine brunch and good drinks are to be had at Union Bar and Grille in the South End.

          1. metropolis cafe in the south end. delicious and great atmosphere

              I can second the Metropolis suggestion. I was there this past weekend for the very first time. The monte cristo was quite well done, stacked high with thick bread and delicious cheese, ham and turky. I also got a taste of the black bean potato hash which I quite enjoyed. The staff is friendly and efficient, turning tables over quickly without making you feel rushed.
