Where to Brunch

Brunch favorites served all day long at Ferrara’s Kitchen + Bar, located at 76 Salem Street.

The North End has a plethora of Italian options but when it comes to breakfast spots, the neighborhood is surprisingly lacking. Ferrara’s Kitchen + Bar is the exception, they serve from their brunch menu all. day. long. With James Dean and Marilyn Monroe adorning the walls, it’s an unexpected Italian diner experience. Playing 1950s music on repeat, I can’t help but dance a little in my chair and sing-a-long to my favorite Motown hits.

Anything smothered in their pesto will be delicious but my favorite dish to order is the Benedict because I’m still mastering the art of poaching an egg. With two options on the menu, making a decision is like picking a puppy. The Seafood Benedict features lump Maryland crab while the Ham Benedict has maple-cured Canadian bacon. Either way, I’m always pleased with the outcome, yet somehow that doesn’t translate to the next visit’s decision making process. Other favorites include Chicken & Waffles and French Toast. Spicy bloody Mary’s and tangy mimosas make for a great boozy brunch accompaniment.

Reservations are not taken for brunch. Expect to come early (10am latest) or in you’re in for a wait. However, you can leave your name and number with the hostess and receive a phone call when you’re table is ready.
