Boston Food Journal Does Sunday Funday Right

Lobster Frittata? Check. Short Rib Benedict? Check. Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar, complete with mile-high garnish? Check.

Brittany DiCapua, owner and operator of the Boston Food Journal, recently grabbed some friends and headed to brunch at Bostonia for Sunday Funday. She raved about her overall experience and called the menu, “variant, affordable, and simply delicious.”

But for her group the Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar stole the show. “My friends and I took the challenge very seriously and constructed a multi-level Bloody Mary tower that defied the odds,” said DiCapua. “It consisted of jumbo shrimp cocktail, bacon wrapped scallops, green olives, mini powdered sugar donuts, cucumbers, an arrangement of fruits, cheddar cheese chunks, beef jerky, hot peppers, and chocolate (because why not, at that point).”

Hops & Horns Discovers Saturday Brunch at Bostonia

Mario “beertoro” Toro recently stumbled across Saturday brunch at Bostonia, on a weekend visit to Boston.  He loves to experience life one beer at a time and pens the blog, Hops & Horns, a story of beer, breweries and the best eats he can find in the Northeast and beyond.

In his post, Toro said, “Our brunch spots usually check all the boxes on a short but specific checklist: it needs to have a great ambiance, a decent craft beer list, and of course, food that’ll sooth the hungry soul. Bostonia Public House nailed it in each of those three categories for us.”

Some highlights for Toro included the Scrambler Breakfast Sandwich, Bro-Mosa and (even though he just drooled over these but didn’t drink them) the Bloody Marys.
