Any advice on best Boston brunch?
I'm looking to take a middling sized party for an early brunch in May during my daughter's graduation. Problem is, I haven't had brunch in Boston in decades. Any hints as to the best places to try? I'd love somewhere relatively close to Fenway/BU area.
Henrietta's Table has a wonderful brunch, but it's in the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square. It can easily accommodate larger groups, and it's very sunny & pleasant. The food's locally sourced & organic, and it's fantastic, and the service is excellent. Be sure to make an early reservation, wherever you go -- graduation time is a mob scene in this town! If you really want to stay in the neighborhood, I second the Eastern Standard idea. It, too, is capable of handling a large group with grace, and the food's very good. It's right in Kenmore Square.
Hmm... any particular atmosphere? What is middling size?
In Fenway, Eastern Standard (http://easternstandardboston.com) is a sophisticated
option. Food, raw bar, and drinks are consistently good.
Beacon Street Tavern is not too far from Fenway and has good food and a nice outside patio. The Elephant Walk (http://www.elephantwalk.com/) has excellent French-Cambodian food. This is not your typical bacon and eggs place so be sure and take a look at the menu.
