    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!

    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

    Got the huevos rancheros and a bloody Mary at branch time. It was amazing. Service was good, the vibe is cool.

    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.

    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

    The Brunch Fiesta for $9.95 is the best for college kids looking to go out for Sunday brunch.

    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

    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!

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