    Masa in South End Boston, though known for a large and exotic tequila selection, was also a perfect brunch spot for champagne and good eats! Can't wait to go back!

    This is a fabulous fiesta brunch option for the budget-minded: From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Sundays, you get a starter and an entree at Masa. Read more

    If you’re one of those “Sriracha on everything” people, try Masa. The menu at this chic South End eatery is overrun with words like “chipotle,” “jalapeno,” and “chile-dusted” – even the cocktails. Read more

    This funky little bar unfortunately closed @930pm due to a huge party earlier on clearing them out of food. Had the small, tasty tapas platter - and 1 mezcal cocktail before we had to leave. Shame!

    Check onthebar.com to see when Danny is working- best bartender in the 617. Accommodating, a sophisticated conversationalist, and most importantly, drinks his own creations.

    Fantastic brunch. Delicious corn bread with three spreads - butter with honey and molasses, chipotle cranberry, and jalapeno apricot, then 2 courses for $7.95. Highly recommend

    Their cornbread is delicious, and their tapas are so great for their value, especially when they're 50% off. But holy crap the dish with the pepper... I died.

    This ain't your country club's Bloody Mary: among the 22 ingredients you'll find in the mix are chipotle paste, clam juice, beef bouillon cubes, and fresh onions. Read more

    Entrees came out before bread...but the awesome drinks made up for it. Great dinner scene before a night out.

    The "Fiesta Brunch" for $7.95 might be the best breakfast value in the entire city. Phenomenal.

    Brunch! The Bloody Mary is better than the Bloody Masa. Both are a bit on the sweet side.

    Greg has a decade behind him serving the best bar in Boston. Thursday nights dollar tapas are the bomb.
