Saturday Brunch recos

njoy Jan 24, 2008 11:50 AM

Hey Crew - Making plans for brunch in Boston this weekend and interested in your thoughts. Flexible on neighborhood.

Looking for a nice place - not necessarily just to spend a lot of $$, but to have it be a little more special. Emphasis on great coffee and excellent service, not too noisy or hectic, but kind of hip.

It's not the last time I went out for brunch of course, but last year we went to The Fed (prior to converting to Mooooo) and had such a great experience there - food was good, coffee delicious, service outstanding. I don't know if I'm all that exciting about checking out Moooo, but will consider it if you encourage me to do so.

      The B-Side is great for brunch- I get the Down Home (ham steak, red-eye gravy, scrambled eggs, and grits) about every other week. My wife loves the biscuits and gravy. Plus, their bloody mary's are excellent.

      B-Side Lounge
