Help! Best High-End Brunch Place for Tomorrow

sleekshark May 24, 2008 06:01 PM

Hi. I'm new to the board and only been in the area for a little bit. My parents are in town tomorrow (Sunday), and wanted to get a nice brunch with some of their friends - a few of whom are true foodies. I'm looking for recommendations for the best fancy brunch place around Boston/Cambridge. Was thinking Sel de la Terre, but hoping for other suggestions! Looking generally for more 'lunchish' food. Thanks!

    Meritage at Boston Harbor Hotel. Plus free parking which is a total bonus. You cannot beat the water views and the service. They have a great cold buffet and then make omlets, pancakes, etc. to order PLUS these little amuse bouches throughout the dinner make this very chow worthy.

      The Four Seasons brunch buffet.

        For future reference, I'd add that Mooo offered a nice brunch and I liked the room. As lovely as the Four Seasons is, I have a hard time with a buffet at that price point.

        Sel de la Terre is a good call. Other quick picks:

        Eastern Standard in Kenmore, a "Boston brasserie".

        Blue Room in Kendall. It's a very cool, savory-heavy buffet, with a distinct Cantabridgian bent.

          The Blue Room is a very good choice - More international or eclectic in its spread and less typical brunch items. Reservations are strongly suggested though.

            the op asked for fancy. as much as i love the blue room, that brunch is pretty casual, even though the food rocks.

            i was thinking the four seasons like the op below.
