Outdoor dining in Boston

Outdoor dining in Boston's South End

En español | Boston fare ranges from authentic international to cutting-edge, fusion-style cuisine. The authentic clam chowder and Boston Cream Pie are as good as you’ve heard and the city’s outdoor cafes and waterfront views enhance dining experiences. From burgers to bistros, search by cuisine, neighborhood and price to find the best dining experience for any palate and budget.

Brunch in Boston isn’t just for Sunday anymore! Chefs in several of the city’s best-known restaurants are cooking up the freshest ingredients of the season to create all of your brunch favorites, plus some special surprises. From classic menu items to innovative and award-winning cuisine, start your days right during Life@50+ with a delicious brunch.

The Café at the Taj Hotel
15 Arlington St.
The Café
, a AAA 4-Diamond-rated restaurant overlooking fashionable Newbury Street, serves an à la carte brunch on Saturdays and Sundays until 2:30 p.m. It is one of Boston's most popular brunches with Bloody Marys, champagne and cocktails. The Café offers a tempting variety, such as rock shrimp hash, smoked salmon or brioche French toast. From April through November, they serve a champagne Sunday brunch buffet at The Roof restaurant with panoramic views of the Public Garden and Boston’s cityscape.

Brasserie JO at the Colonnade Hotel
120 Huntington Ave.
Under the culinary direction of world-renowned Chef Jean Joho, owner of the acclaimed Everest and the Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Las Vegas, Brasserie JO has the style and cuisine of classic brasseries throughout France. Boasting the largest selection of brunch items in Boston, Brasserie Jo offers their signature omelets, handmade crepes and fresh pastries in addition to all of their classic brunch staples.

Parker's at the Omni Parker House Hotel
60 School St.
Experience the weekend brunch menu available on both Saturday and Sunday at Parker’s Restaurant. This awarding-winning restaurant offers guests a superb culinary experience and exceptional personal service.

Smith & Wollensky
294 Congress St. at Atlantic Wharf
Try the Benedict Oscar Style — poached eggs, sautéed crabmeat, asparagus and béarnaise sauce on marble rye toast. Of course, there’s Smith & Wollensky’s version of steak and eggs — two 4 oz. filet medallions served with roasted wild mushrooms, hashed brown potatoes and two poached eggs. In the mood for something sweet? The Cinnamon French Toast — thick cut brioche bread soaked in sweet cinnamon custard, topped with dark rum, flamed bananas and caramel — is sure to please. Don’t forget to complement your brunch with a Gazpacho Bloody Mary or Blood Orange Mimosa.
