Best of Boston
2008 Best Breakfast
Among Boston’s power-breakfast set, Ken Oringer’s otherwise high-profile restaurant (and the chef’s own ‘baby’) has mostly remained a close-kept secret. Exquisitely mannered servers glide through the elegant dining room, quick with the coffee and sparing with the interruptions. The only risk is that the caviar scrambled eggs, banana galettes, and fresh-baked zucchini bread might have you paying more attention to your plate than to your breakfast companion.
