Boston Restaurant: Brunch at The Fireplace

What: The Fireplace
Where: 1634 Beacon Street, Washington Square, Brookline
Honeys Heart: Dinner and dessert

Another day, another brunch...

Lauren is a Groupon fanatic, so she was all over The Fireplace groupon that offered $10 for $20 worth of brunch or lunch food.

There were so many things that looked good on the menu that we had a bit of a hard time figuring out what to order. We eventually decided that we should share "New England-y" things since that's what The Fireplace is known for.

We started out with the breakfast part of our brunch, Crispy Cornmeal Waffles with fresh fruit, blueberry whipped cream & Vermont maple syrup ($12).

Our lunch portion consisted of the New England Cobb Salad ($12) with grilled chicken breast, avocado & Massachusetts blue cheese.

Both were tasty, though I did enjoy the salad more than I did the waffle. (It's hard for anything to top something made with avocado in my book.) There was just nothing outstanding about either dish.

I've had dinner and dessert at The Fireplace before and I was much more impressed with those meals. So, while I don't think I'll return for brunch, I'd definitely still reccomend this spot for a special dinner or drinks and desserts at the bar.
