Best of Boston

2013 Best Brunch

Craigie on Main

Tony Maws has made a name for himself with the meaty inventiveness of his dinner menu, and his brunch menu reflects that same ethos. Oft-changing dishes include rabbit ragout layered with smooth, creamy grits; tender roasted veal and cheese pressed into a gooey sandwich; and beef cheek, brisket, and tongue tossed into a savory hash and served alongside onion rings. Equal attention is paid to items bubbly and sweet, like the ever-changing “Sunday Sparkler” cocktail and the luxurious house-made doughnuts drizzled with thick caramel sauce.
