Brunchin’ to the Beat with Boston Brunchers & Beat Brasserie

Ah Sunday, the best dining out day of the week for one reason – BRUNCH. Seriously, who doesn’t love brunch? You get to sleep in from Saturday night’s shenanigans and still wake up with plenty of time to enjoy your Eggs Benedict and lots of greasy bacon. Brunch can also be the perfect time to catch up with friends, I mean let’s face it, you’re getting a bit over the clubs and that music is just so loud, how can you even hear your friends?

Last Sunday, I did just that, catching up with some blogger friends and meeting new ones at the latest Boston Brunchers event at Beat Brasserie in Harvard Square, Cambridge.

Walking inside Beat Brasserie, I felt a bit of déjà vu, although I haven’t dined her before, I feel like I’ve dined somewhere very similar.  My mind was on the right track as Beat Brasserie sister restaurant is The Beehive in the South End, a hip eatery known for their jazz/live music, delicious drinks and appetizing brunch.

We sat in a corner with prime view of the jazz band playing on stage. The acoustics were great as we were able to hear both the music and the people sitting right next to us.

We started off with sharing a Bohemian Platter, a generous selection of homemade pita bread, hummus, fried chickpeas, cheese, sun-dried tomato spread and olives. It was very light and tasty so it got our taste buds wanting watering and our stomachs ready for the main courses.

 Next up we tried something very different, so different I wasn’t actually sure if it was legal. Buffalo Chicken…minus the chicken and add cauliflower. Yes, Buffalo Cauliflower and I’m telling you right now, if I weren’t told, I would have no idea it was cauliflower. These were surprisingly good with the same texture, buffalo sauce and taste, this is a must dish to try.

Main Courses for Brunch!
For my main course, I went with the Ham, Swiss and Spinach Quiche, a basic sounding dish with plenty of taste and surprisingly filling.

A few other blogger’s dishes included, Eggs Benedict with House Smoked Salmon

Of course, no brunch is complete without BACON!

Beat Brasserie is located right off the Harvard Square T stop so it’s a perfect place to grab a drink after work, have a great dinner date or settle in for a jazz brunch with the girls. No more excuses, go out this weekend and give Beat a try!

What’s your favorite dining destination in Harvard Square?
