Whether you’re in Boston for business or pleasure, you’ll find yourself in a bustling cosmopolitan city, with inhabitants from all over the world. This means that you’ll find an incredible scene for arts, culture, and — most importantly — food! With some of the best restaurants and most celebrated chefs in the country, you’ll have no trouble finding something good to eat. You’re spoiled for choice, so we’ve rounded up the very best spots to grab brunch in the city.

Bar Mezzana is an Italian-inspired spot, that promises homemade strawberry pop tarts, gorgeous brunch cocktails donned with bright umbrellas, as well as heavier Italian dishes like bucatini carbonara and mortadella sandwiches. You’ll catch chef Colin Lynch’s restaurant on Harrison Avenue — afterwards, we suggest a stroll and shop around SoWa Open Market.

For some classic American fare, look no further than Boston Chops on Washington Street. Here you can expect a lot of beef — steak of all cuts, as well as brisket, shank and tongue. The burger is beautiful, and so are the Bloody Marys. For sunny weather, Boston Chops has a beautiful patio. Check the site for the nearest location to you.

For a fusion menu, Deep Ellum is a gastropub in Allston known for its acclaimed craft brew list. We’d suggest the spicy kimchi dog, but for those less adventurous there’s fried chicken with biscuits, eggy avocado toast, and a “BBQ breakfast” — each with a little twist.

It’s almost October, so maybe you want something… spookier? The Gallows on Washington Street in the South End has witchy brews for cocktails, as well as a long comfort food brunch menu. Chase down your fried eggs with a doughnut from The Gallows’ sibling operation, Blackbird Doughnuts.

Wherever you choose to go, you’ll need to plan ahead — brunch in Boston is no joke, so play it safe and make a reservation to avoid the long lines. If you’re planning a boozy brunch out with friends, or a special brunch occasion, book a ride to and from the venue so you can focus on enjoying the day. Reach out soon so our specialists can help you organize your outing.
