Sunday Funday with Puritan & Co. in Cambridge – Just One Elle

Stepping in the front door, I instantly loved it. It was bright, airy, trendy, and homey all at the same time. It was busy but not overly crowded (we were there at 1pm), and I was immediately jealous that this little gem wasn’t in my neighborhood.

Puritan & Co. with the Boston Brunchers – The Pantry Raid

Enter, the Boston Brunchers, a group of Boston-based bloggers who get together every so often for brunch. The restaurants that host us love us because it means lots of meaty media coverage for them. And we love it because we get to chat about girly things and take pictures of our food with no one to judge us but our Instagram followers.

BRUNCH AT PURITAN & COMPANY – The Jogging Concierge

They serve modern American cuisine with an emphasis on traditional New England dishes. When all possible, their ingredients are sourced locally and from farms that they are familiar with. They boast that the environment of the restaurant is that of being casual and fun, as if you’re dining at home. I can certainly attest to the fact that our server, Dave, was both causal and fun.

A Return to Brunching at Puritan & Company – Sweetly Serendipity

The steak was expertly cooked, and the eggs perfectly runny. There is really nothing like a well-executed sunny-side up egg. The well-seasoned potatoes were pretty standard, crispy on the edges and tender in the centers, and acted as a great vehicle for sopping up egg yolk. On the side was a serving of the lightest and most airy hollandaise sauce I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. I’ve never seen anything like it — it’s almost like it was whipped cream — but the taste was spot on. Even the accompanying lightly dressed greens and seemingly simple little toasts were delicious, and I, admittedly, ate every. single. bite.

Brunch at Puritan and Co – The Foodies at Work

My Spinach and Cheddar Scramble also surpassed my expectations.  This seemingly simple dish was anything but.  The ratio of eggs, cheddar, and broccoli was perfect and it was cooked thoroughly, just how I like it.  The arugula salad was a light side dish, and the small toast was deceptively well buttered and tasted like fresh homemade bread.  My whole meal was delicious!

Puritan & Company Offers a Fantastic Farm-to-Table Brunch – Foodie Journey

Puritan & Company offers a small brunch menu.  In addition to pastries and the sticky bun, diners can order a Yogurt and Fruit Plate; a Croissant Breakfast Sandwich with bacon, eggs and cheddar; a Coppa Ham Sandwich with pickles, mustard, mornay sauce and potatoes; Wagyu Steak & Eggs with Hollandaise sauce, potatoes and toast; a Mushroom Quiche with spinach, cheddar and maitake mushrooms, Sourdough Griddle Cakes served with honey butter, preserves and nuts and a Broccoli and Cheddar scramble with baby greens, cheddar and toast. And the hash (which we’ll get to later).

Puritan & Company Brunch with The Boston Brunchers – In the Night Kitchen

Did you notice how beautiful those eggs are? Those are real farm fresh eggs and man are they delicious. I had the broccoli and cheddar scramble, which was all things eggs are supposed to be, and cheesy. I’ve recently realized that broccoli may be my favorite vegetable, so this was an added plus to the scramble (and we were all a little sad though that the quiche was sold out by the time we arrived).

Sundays are for Navel Grazing: Brunch at Puritan & Co – Leah’s Life: Oysters & Pearls

Chef Will Gilson is a favourite of mine, not because I know him personally (I don’t), not because I’ve been eating his food since his days at Garden at the Cellar, but because I finally made time to try his food just before he started his own restaurant and I’ve been under his spell ever since.  This weekend I got to try brunch at Puritan & Co. and I think I saw stars.

Brunching at Puritan & Co – PaleoPrincessBlog

We were first greeted with their pastry assortment, all of which we couldn’t get enough of! Banana bread, Boston Cream donuts, blondies, and a ham cheese pinwheel to name a few. I tried one of each of course and settled on the dulche de leche and coconut danish. My taste buds were more than delighted.

Review: Boston Brunchers Do Puritan & Co. – The Fab Empire

For an alcoholic beverage I had the Thaw in the Straw which includes, bourbon, honey, lemon and ginger beer. The flavor was very balanced and gave the feeling of a fresh lemonade. It was bright and airy – like a mason jar full of spring.  And after all we’ve been through this winter season, a welcomed treat.

Brunch at Puritan and Company – Urban Foodie Finds

Brunch Wagyu Steak & Eggs from Puritan & Co in Inman SquareFor the main event, the wagyu steak and eggs was definitely the most popular choice of the table. Every inch of this meal was delicious, from the perfectly cooked sunny side up, farm fresh, Technicolor eggs, to the expertly medium-rare cooked wagyu, to even the scali toast that was divinely grilled in butter.

Gluten Free Brunch options at Towne Stove & Spirits – Gluten Free Boston Girl

The atmosphere is both laid back and sophisticated. I loved the open dining room, with big windows that let in lots of light, and the high ceilings. The downstairs bar was much cozier and a bit darker; making it a great spot for a date night or after work drinks.

Brunch on the Towne – BIG CITY, LIL KITCHEN

We all ended on the dessert bar. Ate a little bit of everything. However, the consensus was the the chocolate chip bread pudding won brunch. And rightly so. It was delicious…warm, buttery, gooey and just seriously sinful. Oy. I think I gained 5lbs just thinking about it.

Brunch at Towne Stove & Spirits – Little Moments of Happiness

Boston Brunchers Around Towne – Alone with a Cupcake

Towne’s brunch buffet certainly puts any other buffet to shame in terms of appearance.  When I walked into the dining room and saw the hot bar of 5 large dishes I eagerly began fantasizing about what to decorate my plate with.  But when I arose from the table with the group to take our food, the members made their way to a completely different part of the room. Unbeknownst to me when I arrived, there were four other stations of delicious things: a raw bar; cracker, cheese, and salad bar; and a bread and pastry station.  To be honest, our stomachs didn’t even allow a visit to that last one because we were so full.

Brunch at Towne Stove and Spirits – Foodie Journey

Next I visited the “cold” station, which had smoothies, a small, but gourmet selection of cheeses (including Ascutney Mountain Cheese, a raw cow’s milk cheese from Vermont, and one of my favorites), an assortment of salads (including lobster Caesar salad and a crab salad), bagels and of course, smoked salmon.  The smoked salmon was garnished with the classics, capers and onions, and was excellent.   This station also offered some pates and terrines.

And I really loved brunch! They serve brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, but on Sunday they have a really fabulous brunch buffet — suitable for every person, every diet, and every mood. There was a carving station, hot breakfast entrees like eggs benedict (with bacon), eggs and hash, poached salmon, and seasoned potatoes… Read my entire post here.

Brunch at Lineage in Brookline – The Economical Eater

Before attending this brunch, I found out that Lineage Chef Jeremy Sewall’s current record also includes Eastern Standard, Island Creek Oyster Bar, and the upcoming Row 34 – and that Chef de Cuisine Alex Sáenz was the opening Executive Chef at Ten Tables in Provincetown. Needless to say, I was pretty darn excited about this brunch.

Oh, and Lineage’s menu is printed daily so they can best accommodate what they find at the farmers’ markets. Just F.Y.I.

Brunch at Lineage with Boston Brunchers – Where’s My Sandwich

But I digress. Anyway, I don’t normally (read: EVER) eat beans, of any kind. And I always order my eggs scrambled. So I was a little nervous when a huge plate of black beans and an over easy egg was put in front of me. However, there was enough steak on the plate to balance it out, so I gave it a whirl. And what a whirl it was. SO. MUCH. DELICIOUS.

153/365 (one): the vine brook experience – Nourish: A 365 Project

To call my meal with The Boston Brunchers today simply “brunch” would not come close to doing it justice.  From the designer cocktails, to dishes featuring locally sourced ingredients, to the historic architecture of Lexington’s second post office in which we found ourselves, to the operatic serenade by the Julliard-trained server, dining at Vine Brook Tavern was an experience I will not soon forget.

Boston Brunchers: BOKX 109 American Prime in Newton, MA – Good Cook Doris

 For entrees, the hubby and I chose two different egg dishes. For my entree, I opted for the Filet and Eggs Benedict. There were so many good flavors – the perfectly medium steak, rich runny egg yolk, white truffle, and bearnaise on top of grilled ciabatta. I am not normally an eggs benedict fan, but this won me over. The confit potatoes were rich and creamy.

The Sinclair: The Coolest Brunch in Town – Alone with a Cupcake

The Calamari won me over.  Still a kid at heart; fry anything and I’ll eat it.  Not so kid-like, though, I liked that it was spicy.  The Tom Yum Gai sauce was delicious, proving that the Sinclair has a wide range of flavor profiles under its belt.  Gluten friendly, it’s fried with cornmeal, not flour.

The Bloody Mary was exceptional, by the way. Chris and I both remarked on how delicious it was, a real surprise and treat for me, because I can’t stand most Bloody Mary’s at most restaurants. But BOKX 109 put a lot of spices and add-ins to make it unique. It was certainly a knock-out brunch drink.

The Sinclair at Harvard Square – Bread and Beta

Their deck was completely unexpected after being inside the bar. It was insulated and well protected from all the activity outside. Like the interior, it was filled with beautiful furniture and well-thought-out decor. I was pleased and completely at ease in the environment. The decor had the right balance of elegance and edginess. It was attractive and unique without being distracting or uncomfortable.

Brunch at Bokx 109 – Urban Foodie Finds

Always a fan of the Bokx 109 steaks, the filet and eggs was an easy decision for my main course. This was served benedict-style with two sous vide eggs over grilled brioche and topped with borderlaise (I requested mine on the side, which they gladly accommodated). Both the steak and eggs were cooked perfectly, and I loved the hint of truffle in the sauce.

Upon arrival we were immediately taken up to their adorable outdoor patio area, which considering the city was abuzz with the festivities of cinco de mayo, was pleasantly serene. Mind you, this was my second Boston Brunchers event so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but was delighted to see new faces and can honestly say I enjoyed this experience much better than the last at THE FIREPLACE.

Sinclair Harvard Square Review – Sound of Charm

Our first course was a fresh oyster, on top of a mound of salt and sprinkled with garnish. Okay confession.. This was my first time having an oyster as a small plate entree. I’m used to a roady bucket with ice and the oysters alined in a circle on top. So me being me, a beginner food blogger, I take a scoop of the salt, thinking it is some type of rice and I taste it. I was so glad everyone was preoccupied with throwing back their oysters instead of paying attention to the table, let alone me! I had to call my mom and laugh this one out because, that was definitely a first.

For the Love of Brunch – alone with a cupcake

But seriously, people are obsessed with brunch. Maybe it’s because indulging first thing in the morning is a nice alternative to how you usually start your day. Maybe doing so is liberating, and makes you feel like you know how to have fun and appreciate life. Maybe this is severe overanalysis, but I would safely conclude that people seem happier over brunch.

Boston Brunchers Heat it Up at The Fireplace – Paleo Princess Blog

As this was my first event, I was unsure of how the ordering worked. Would we all order separate dishes or a bunch to share? I love sharing! Fortunately, because the menu was so daunting (even though I love having so many choices), the girls thought it best to order a few savory dishes to share as appetizers and then we’d also each order our own.

Brunch at John Harvard’s Brewery in Harvard Square – Cooking Whims

John Harvard is just a five minute walk from the T in Harvard Square, and very close to several parking garages. When we arrived, We were greeted with enthusiasm by the host and were immediately seated. There weren’t a lot of people there at noon (maybe because it was St. Patty’s Day weekend — or maybe because it’s more active at the restaurant at night), but regardless, the service was very speedy. We were given the brunch and the lunch menu — a nice option in case you aren’t in the mood for brunch.

The Best Brunch Buffet in Boston – The Blue Room – Eat.Live.Blog

But what makes a buffet stand out like the Blue Room? Well I am glad you asked! First, let’s talk set-up. You will not find pans of food set out to be dry on top and burnt from sterno lights on the bottom. The Blue Room’s buffet is set-up directly on the kitchen line. Each dish is made in a small batch and served in skillets, platters or baking dishes. While this does mean that if you time it wrong, some things will be empty, it also means that a fresh batch will be out shortly there-after.

Once in a Blue Moon: Brunch at The Blue Room with Boston Brunchers – Sweet, Savor & Smile

As we were standing around, they started us off with an extremely delicious drink called the Ramos Fizz, consisting of gin, lemon lime, egg whites, heavy cream, and sugar. It was extremely light and delicious. Not too sweet, which was perfect for my taste.
