Brunch is back! On second thought did it ever go away? Admittedly, late fall and winter are ideal brunch season - long, late Sunday ( or Saturday) mornings, with a collection of friends, maybe a newspaper (or your phone) and a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa - your choice. Point of fact the above ingredients are available year round throughout Boston, so you can brunch your way through the whole year.
Menus for this no man’s land meal - somewhere between breakfast and lunch - run the gamut from bacon & eggs to vegan specialties to classic eggs benedict, often offered with non-classic twists. Some offer boozy pancakes - others live jazz for easy listening. Choices include, full buffet, prix fixe or a la carte. One invites you to wear your pajamas, another only serves chocolate in every conceivable shape and form, some include a DIY Bloody Mary bar and many re-fill the caffeine at no cost in sympathy to the night before…
