Brunch is one of the best meals of the week, and this past Sunday, after waking up late and lolling around the house, we decided to eat at Sensing at the Fairmont Battery Wharf. We had only eaten at Sensing once before, for lunch last 4th of July, and after a great lunch experience, I was looking forward to brunch by the bay.
For a city that has so much water, Boston severely lacks in waterfront dining options, don’t you think?
Sensing’s outdoor patio has a great view of the harbor, and we were gratefully seated in the shade so that we were able to enjoy the beautiful day without baking in the sun. The restaurant manager seated us and served us for most of the meal; the service was absolute perfection.
I started with an extra spicy Bloody Mary, just how I like them. See all that horseradish floating around? Yum!
While we were sipping our drinks, we also nibbled on flaky scones topped with apple butter.
I took this photo of the condiments because they looked so perfect. . . and they are usually a pretty big part of my meal!
And then my brunch arrived, the Coast Guard Omelet, with brie, asparagus, and lobster, oh my. With a stuffed tomato, home fries, carrots, and asparagus on the side, it was a completely indulgent breakfast but still with a lot of nutrition.
The lobster was perfectly cooked, not a chewy bit, and the brie was ooey-gooey and melty.
My husband had the lobster roll which we shared at our last meal at Sensing, and once again it was perfect. The brioche roll makes it extra delicious.
Stuffed, we left to wander down along the waterfront and through the St. Anthony Feast going on in the North End. Other than getting yelled at for taking a photo (of something I was going to buy!) by a child working in the chocolate dipped fruit booth, the feast was enjoyable but a little too crowded for a day that was in the high 80’s. I didn’t buy the chocolate covered apple after the boy yelled at me. Hmph to him.
As a blogger, have you ever gotten yelled at for taking a photo? I was yelled at once before in Lush of all places.
