Best of Boston

2012 BEST Brunch

Gaslight

On a lazy weekend, there’s no better spot to linger with a mimosa than this South End brasserie. Sleek booths and communal tables, plus a rugged bar and sun-lit patio thick with umbrellas, provide a trés chic setting for tucking into Parisian classics like poached eggs with red wine sauce, and a croque-monsieur loaded with tasso ham and topped with bubbling Gruyére.
