weekday working breakfast meeting

I am looking for a place with great food for a breakfast meeting with a client next week. We'll probably meet at 9am or a little after, so I'm thinking that most places thin out by then and I won't have to worry too much about the atmosphere.

Is the Bristol my only choice? Any can't miss dishes there?

Or are there any good places that aren't in hotels or are further out of the city? Any area is fine. I've done Henrietta's table before and want to try something new.

  1. How about Eastern Standard?

    1. Beacon Hill Bistro would be a good choice. Good restaurant attached to a boutique hotel.

        Thanks for the suggestions. I checked Beacon Hill Bistro, but the kitchen closes at 10am. Eastern Standard may be okay. How's the food been recently? There's lots of up and down postings recently.

        I've been looking at more hotels, and was surprised to see that Clio and the Oak Room both serve breakfast. Any one know anything about their weekday breakfasts?

        Still considering Bristol as well as Cafe Fleuri and maybe Brasserie Jo.

        Where do people in Boston go for late-morning business breakfasts?

      2. Try 606 congress in the new boston renaissance harbor hotel. Michael Schlow heads this restaurant. I have heard great things about all meal periods......good luck
