Best Brunch in BostonPosted: March 5, 2012
By Alicia Deily
There is nothing quite like heading out to a leisurely brunch with friends. Break out of your normal routine this weekend and skip the cafeteria. Hop on the T instead and head downtown to some of Boston’s best places to brunch. Here are three very different but equally delicious options:
T Stop: D line- Fenway
Have a religious experience at Church this weekend and sample some incredible brunch food in a completely unique setting. As the name suggests, Church, has a Gothic theme that is completed by stained glass windows and art commissioned by local artist. The brunch menu offers creative takes on classics like macaroni and cheese and breakfast burritos. This is an experience you will be sure to remember.
Neighborhood: Beacon Hill
T Stop: Green Line- Park Street//Red Line- Charles/MGH
The Paramount is well worth the trip into Beacon Hill due to it’s charming atmosphere and historical legacy. The restaurant opened in 1937 and has been a Boston favorite ever since. The breakfast is mouth-watering and the lunch is to die for. The hardest part is deciding which to choose. Expect simple food at a reasonable price. It is the perfect way to begin a day downtown, being minutes away from the Esplanade, the Commons and Newbury Street.
Neighborhood: Back Bay
T Stop: Green Line- Hynes Convention Center
Trident is a small cafe and book shop in the perfect place to begin a day in the city. It is the ideal place for catching up with a friend due to it’s intimate and inviting atmosphere. Trident is also vegetarian/vegan friendly with offerings like a tofu scramble and a bean burrito. Trident also offers fresh juices, smoothies and espresso based drinks. This place is not only great for brunch but for any time of the day.
Gather your friends and leave your usual bland cafeteria fare behind this weekend. Have a new brunch experience; you won’t regret it.
