B is for Brunch

So you know what I haven't done in awhile? Gone out to breakfast or brunch. I know - that was a toughie, particularly with the answer right there in the title. Anyway, I haven't been out for "morning food" in awhile & I've missed it. There's something I love about settling into a big feed of eggs, bacon & toast, accompanied by coffee & orange juice. Could there be anything better?

I have a brunch date on Sunday which I'm excited about (aagh - ending a sentence with a preposition!). Since no one in my office is over 40, I sent out an email requesting recommendations for good brunch places. I got no fewer than thirteen responses, ranging from American diner-style to upscale French, from Watertown to the North End. My office is better than a Zagat's guide!

So far, my top choices are S&S, Cambridge Common, Zaftig's, and Deluxe Town Diner. I'll let you know on Monday how the restaurant (& the guy) were! ;)

wow. no one in my office is under 40. everyone's all old and... smelly.

zaftigs is sweet, but a little too rich for my blood. i like my breakfast joints like i like my bars: cheap, small and guaranteed to render sweet lady diarrhea.

Ooh! I'm dying to know where you went and HOW it went! I went on a brunch date with my now-husband to S & S. Another great brunch place is Christopher's in Porter Square.

Now I want breakfast.
