Best of Boston

2018 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Charlestown

Monument Restaurant & Tavern

At this buzzy new restaurant, brunch is the liveliest meal of the day. Kick things off with the theme-appropriate Cinnamon Toast Brunch cocktail—a White Russian riff garnished with actual cereal bits—before diving into a stack of lemon-poppyseed buttermilk pancakes.
