    Unique: Tremont 647 in the South End where patrons arrive in their pajamas for Sunday Brunch.

        Sorry, never been, but Husbands is a fairly well-respected chef having trained at East Coast Grill under Chris Schlesinger. I am sure that they have a website, you should google the restaurant and check it out.

            Tremont 647 isn't the only place that does a Sunday pajama brunch locally, if memory serves. I'm pretty sure The Living Room at the edge of the North End does this also. Not at all a fan of the food at the latter, though.

            Also not much taken with Tremont 647's food, which I remember overstepping the concept of creative to become downright weird.

            Although the wait can be long, I think that the ECG Sunday brunch is both unique and special -- bloody mary bar, oysters on the half shell, grits, eggs, fish tacos, and wet bones!

          Brookline Family Restaurant - Turkish. Breakfasts are big, tasty and inexpensive, definately a step away from divey. Order at the counter, wait for your number to be called, decent sit-down venue. Freshly made omelets with turkish sausage, other meats or feta and vegs, plus freshly homemade 'pita' which is more like puffed bread bun with black sesame seeds atop. Yum. They have both 'regular' American breakfast and lunch choices, as well as Turkish and middle eastern meals and pastries both sweet and savory. This would be a good choice for out-of-town foodies IMO.

              just back from tremont 647. we had a private room because there were 7 of us. it took too long for the food to come-but eveyone really enjoyed it. the homemade pop tart was yummy. they should have hammedup the pj part a little-they didnt have humor about it. Bakerboyz-you have allowed me to keep my reputation as a fun picker,thanks! thanks for all the other suggestions,too.my companions are usually staying at the boston harbor hotel and it is so nice to get out of there into Boston!

                Firefly's just started a great brunch - combines new breakfast options and their traditional southern style bbq stuff. Can't beat the enormous selection for the price.
