Southern Kin Debuts Weekend Brunch
Boston Nightlife Ventures debuted a spirited homage to Southern cuisine and hospitality in Assembly Square this month, and the biscuits are rising for Southern Kin Cookhouse brunch service to start this weekend.
Bill Brodsky’s brunch menu, available both Saturday and Sunday, reflects a lot of lowcountry influence from the chef’s time at the Palmetto Café at the Charleston Place Hotel. The requisite Benedict come with a pot of white cheddar grits, or skip the hollandaise in favor of red-eye gravy with the Gullah breakfast. Sweet starts include malted buttermilk waffle with vanilla chantilly cream and maple-bourbon syrup, or griddle cakes fit for the King, with banana compote, pecans, and peanut butter.
Southern Kin’s whiskey-based cocktail program is in full swing during the new service. Try the Farmer’s Breakfast, a nog-like libation with beverage director Michael Boughton’s vanilla coffee bourbon, creme de cacao, and an egg, or quench the thirst of your whole crew with a huge jug of bourbon peach sweet tea, or raspberry-mint bourbon lemonade. There are also brunch necessities, like an okra and pork rind-garnished Carolina bloody Mary.
Brunch debuts Saturday, June 25, and is served every weekend from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
