Super Hunger Brunch

I don’t ever need an excuse to go out for brunch; its leisurely pace, yummy breakfast/lunch combo dishes, and of course, cocktails, make it my favorite meal of the week.

Super Hunger Brunch, however, makes going out to brunch in Boston a million times more meaningful. Hunger is an ongoing problem in our city and our Commonwealth, and by simply going to brunch during this special event, you and your friends and family can contribute to something that provides solid solutions to this problem.

On January 27 and 28, 2018, local restaurants (listed out below) will offer special Super Hunger Brunch menus or dishes, donating 100% of proceeds to The Greater Boston Food Bank. This is the 36th annual Super Hunger Brunch, and it promises to be fantastic. You can plan ahead and buy gift certificates here.

Be sure to also make a reservation at your restaurant of choice, as a gift certificate does not equal a reservation.

Pink and green and Champagne all day. . . and a lush courtyard to top it all off. . .

On this arctic day in Boston, I am dreaming of New Orleans and our recent stay at Royal Sonesta New Orleans. Be sure to read about our food and incredible music experience if you’re planning your own NOLA trip!

We could have easily stayed at our hotel for all of our meals, but since New Orleans has so many amazing restaurants, we of course ventured out and explored. And while I was working the entire trip, I also really wanted to feel like we were away, so I did a ton of research on weekday brunch. Brennan’s kept popping up in my searches, and on our first day when we discovered it was just a few blocks from our hotel, we decided it would be a definite brunch spot for us.

Brennan’s is beyond elegant and charming, and the service was top notch. I think we had seven different people assisting us throughout our visit. While the inside was lovely, a courtyard brunch in December won us over.

The courtyard at Brennan’s is decked out in pink and green, a favorite color combination of mine, and I loved every detail, down to the jingle bells on pink ribbons for guests to take home.

What I really wanted to take him is this table. How beautiful is it?!

A French press full of chicory coffee was freshly pressed at our table, and we soaked up some of the sun and green while we decided on our brunch.

This little oasis was vacation perfection, and the coffee hit the spot for my insomniac self.

Brennan’s offered a Champagne menu, and being a huge lover of bubbles, I had to go with a Champagne cocktail. It may have been early, but what’s brunch without bubbles?

This drink was delicious, and I loved the coupe glass it was served in, adding to the elegant and historic feel of the restaurant.

The brunch menu had some truly decadent offerings, and we decided to split two of the most luxurious looking items on the menu.

New Orleans brunch

I was all about the seafood and went straight in for the Eggs Cardinal: Crispy Shrimp Boudin, Spinach, Lobster Cardinal, Black Truffle Hollandaise. I mean, lobster and truffle on the same plate, paired with a Champagne cocktail? Truly this was my definition of dining heaven.

He went with the hearty Eggs Hussarde: A Brennan’s Original – Housemade English Muffins, Coffee Cured Canadian Bacon, Hollandaise, Marchand De Vin Sauce. If you haven’t had coffee cured bacon, I recommend seeking some out ASAP.

We were both completely enamored with our meals and ate every bite as we listened to the fountains and watched the silly turtles slowly get around.

The turtles were a conversation piece for all of the diners, it seemed! Turtle soup was on the menu, and we definitely opted NOT to get it after seeing these guys!

New Orleans brunch

Brunch at Brennan’s was a real treat and a time to relax and slow down before we headed out for a busy day of exploring New Orleans. It’s a spot I would visit again at any time of day but especially during their Bubbles at Brennan’s Happy Hour!

We’ve loved life in Dorchester for 11 years now, and while we always had a few restaurant favorites, the restaurant scene in the past year has grown like crazy. The Industry on Adams in bustling Adams Village is our new obsession. . . since they opened about a month ago we have been in five times!

Why do we love it?

First of all, it’s beautifully appointed; it definitely has an old Boston look and feel while also being chic and modern. It feels like it’s always been there.

Second, the staff is great. Everyone is super friendly and engaging, no matter how busy they are, and we like going in just to chat with them.

gin cocktails

And then there are the cocktails. They have an extensive selection of whiskeys, in addition to all sorts of other spirits, wines, and beers, and they’re always experimenting with new cocktails. The above grapefruit and gin with a salt simple syrup was simply amazing.

oysters

Every meal we have had at The Industry has been top notch, from their super fresh oysters, which are always the perfect size for me to their salads. I love when a menu has a number of salads on it to choose from, especially when they aren’t just boring old lettuce. We enjoyed the burratta and tomato on our first visit, and this warm mushroom and asparagus salad was to-die-for.

Look at that egg! This plate of truffle-y goodness made for the perfect dinner on a night where it was too hot to cook at home!

   steak frites On the same night, we also shared steak frites perfection and a heavenly chocolate soufflé because, despite being super full from dinner, we had to try their desserts! 

The soufflé was so light on the outside and molten inside, the perfect chocolate-y treat for us to share, and one I am still dreaming about. 

chocolate souffle

The burger at The Industry comes with bourbon and bacon jam, which tells you all you need to know. This jam is phenomenal, and the burger is equally delicious.

When a new restaurant opens in the neighborhood, my first question is always if they are going to do brunch, and The Industry, though new, has already started serving brunch. We were some of the first brunch customers!

Irish breakfast

It was an Irish breakfast for him. . . if there’s an Irish breakfast on the menu he will have to have it!

I went with the bacon wrapped Benedict because how could you not? Jalapeño Cornbread, BBQ Hollandaise, Pickled Red Onion, Crispy Onion . . . amazing! This was one decadent brunch, and my only wish was that I could order it in half size. Together we couldn’t finish it!

We can walk to The Industry from our house, which is a good thing, as we need to burn off some of the stellar and indulgent meals we’ll be enjoying there. If you haven’t been to Dorchester recently, now’s the time to visit!
