Brunch in Back Bay or South End?
Hi, Something else I am trying to find since moving from Manhattan is a great brunch in Back Bay or South End area. Somewhere you can go for a Bloody Mary and great Eggs. I don't mind spending money on this type of meal so long as the atmosphere and food are worth it.
Union Bar and Grille in South End has a great deal: from 10-11 a.m. on Sunday and from 10-3 Saturday they have an all-inclusive brunch for $9.95!!! It includes choice of 3 entrees (omelet, french toast, etc.) juice, coffee or tea and cinnamon coffee cake. They also have other options for reasonable prices. And bloody mary's too.
Believe it or not, Charley's on Newbury Street does a good brunch and it's not that expensive. Another BBRG restaurant that has a good brunch is Abe & Louie's on Boylston. Both places I believe offer a choice out of 4 or 5 complimentary cocktails at brunch, one of them being a Bloody Mary. The Bristol Lounge at the Four Seasons has a nice brunch and great Bloody Marys. Trident Cafe is very good (on Newbury), but they don't serve Bloody Marys as I recall. Excellent coffees, teas, and smoothie drinks can be had there though. I heard something about Casa Romero on Gloucester St. having a brunch, but I've never been myself so I wonder if other Chow Hound people can weigh in on them. In the S. End, I know Union does a good brunch. I've heard Beehive has a good brunch, but I've never gone. I have been to the Butcher Shop for brunch. It was good, but expensive for what you got, IMO. For a greasy spoon type of breakfast (definitely good eggs) there's Mike's City Diner. Bloody Marys are not on the menu though. :-(
