The hottest brunch ticket over the past five-plus years has been Cafe Luna, and its smoked duck tacos show why – though Davis Square’s Painted Burro and Los Amigos Taqueria will more than do for tacos in a pinch. Speaking of hot tickets: Bambara kicks off Pride with a Sunday drag brunch.
Russell House Tavern has been grinding it out the whole way through the pandemic with a brunch offering everything from cinnamon buns to oysters, eggs Benedict and a breakfast pizza. Opt for a smoked housemade andouille sausage hash and you’ll find it spicy and satiating, yet light.
What exactly are tequeños? If you embrace the warm, filling comfort of mozzarella sticks with a chunky marinara sauce for dipping, you’re halfway there. But Orinoco’s cheese is a soft, salty, white cow’s milk product from the Guayana region of Venezuela, and it is fried almost tempura light.
