Best of Boston

1999 Best Buffet, Brunch

The Blue Room

If you think buffet means institutional, steam-table fare, think again. The Blue Room brunch includes everything from pancakes to quesadillas, pork ribs to smoked salmon, Moroccan spiced chicken thighs to hot salted shrimp, and quality is always high.
