Help: Sunday Brunch for a Dozen (and big anniversary)...

TexanInMA Jul 31, 2012 10:08 AM

I've seen a number of the recommendations for Sunday brunch, and most are smaller places. I'm needing a great recommendation for a crowd of 12. We have a vegetarian but that's not a challenge for brunch.

The crowd likes good food, loves breakfast. It doesn't have to be fancy -- real foodies. Actually, less stuffy is better. We're very open to style -- for example the one place I found in Zagats and was available on OpenTable was The Smiths; it looks good, I like the location, but it's hard to tell.

Again, my challenge has been somewhere that can take a large party!

    Lots of restaurants do NOT allow you to book large groups on OpenTable so I wouldn't really go off of the results there.

    Some ideas for a group of 12:
    inoteca - either location
    Blue Ribbon Bakery
    Freemans - private room
    Jane - sister to The Smith
    Maialino - private room
    Market Table - private room
    Pastis - communal table
    Public - semi private room

      @kathryn thanks for the response. I'll check them out. On Jane, would you recommend it over the Smiths? Blue Ribbin looks great!

        We've had very successful large brunch groups at maialino before - we may have been a bit smaller than 12 but were not required to do the private room.

        How about DBGB?
