These three Mass. Eating places Are Amongst Greatest In US For Brunch, OpenTable Says


Just in time for Mother’s Day, reservations service OpenTable has released its 2021 list of the 100 best brunch restaurants in America, including three places in Massachusetts that are worth getting out of bed for: The Aviary Restaurant & Bar, Buttermilk & Bourbon, and Ledger Restaurant & bar.

We don’t guarantee you will get a table – that’s up to you – but if you’re looking for a place to enjoy your favorite foods and juicy breakfast drinks, OpenTable guests highly recommend them.

Aviary Restaurant & Bar in Swansea serves brunch on Sundays and is known for dishes like BLT omelette, huevos rancheros and The Nutty Pananacakes – buttermilk and banana pancakes with Nutella, toasted almonds and whipped cream.

Buttermilk & Bourbon in Boston’s Back Bay is a Mediterranean weekend brunch restaurant that offers lobster etouffée, pulled pork benedict, and biscuits and gravy. They also put together a soft ice cream mimosa – a combination of sorbet and prosecco.

The Ledger Restaurant & Bar in Salem offers Sunday brunch with creative menu items such as pork belly and semolina, chicken and waffles, and fried Brussels sprouts hash.

OpenTable based its list on diner reviews published between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.
