Brunch (with reservations)

smileback Nov 17, 2007 12:27 PM

Where can I find a great place to have weekend brunch (sat. or sunday is fine) that also takes reservations? I have been to henrietta's table and heard they do, are there other options?

      Most of the places in the South End take reservations for brunch. Check out Opentable.

        Blue Room in Kendall Square has an outstanding brunch, with a dizzying variety of styles, foods and flavors. They reserve via opentable.com.

          I had brunch today at Pops. No reservation, no problem getting a table for three of us at 12:15 but the place was bustling - no seat stayed empty for long!

          I had the Poblano Crab Cakes with scrambled eggs and a tomato salad - very good. One DC had the Reuben which she really loved - the corned beef was the real deal - thick slices of deliciousness (served with coarse mustard instead of russian dressing which would be my concern). Other DC had the potato-garlic omelet which she loved - only thing was it came with nothing - no toast, no veg, nothing.

          Two of us had bloody marys (as did most of the restaurant judging by how many we saw go by on trays!).

          Total for three of us with the three entrees, three bloody marys and two glasses of white wine was $88 before tip.

            We really enjoy the Jazz Brunch at Tryst in Arlington. They take reservations (OpenTable, too).

              Union Bar and Grill in South End. They do both Saturday and Sunday brunch.

                Hamersley's and Sel de La Terre can be added to your list.
