Best of Boston

2023 Best Brunch

Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant

The “chronic bacon” — salty slivers braised with maple and cider, served with crunchy cornflake-crusted French-toast bites and seasonal berries — satisfies sweets lovers and savory seekers alike at this Southie spot. The rest of the menu is also decadent, even by brunch standards: Find stacks of pancakes flecked with Fruity Pebbles and drizzled with cereal milk anglaise, not to mention ginormous coffee-rubbed brisket burritos. The breakfast pizzas and omelets draw crowds for hours-spanning, cocktail-fueled brunches that, thankfully, aren’t just relegated to the weekends.
