As I mentioned in an earlier post, this past weekend two of my best childhood friends were in town from New York City. I wanted them to experience one of the most fun, themed brunches in Boston, the Pajama Brunch at Tremont 647. I had been once before (you can read my original review here) and loved it. I couldn't wait to take them!
We arrived at Tremont 647 at 12:45pm and the pajama clad host informed us it would be a one hour and fifteen minute wait. We waited patiently outside in the sun, but found ourselves a bit peeved when a party of four in front of us was seated when only two of their members were present. They sat at their table, not ordering food, while we waited another thirty minutes. As my out of town guests stated, "this would never happen in New York." Truth.
Once our name was called (2:10pm) and we walked to our table, I remembered how much I love the decor inside the restaurant, particularly the red, patterned wall paper.
We were seated in the back of the restaurant in a cozy, private booth.
We were quite starving at this point and ordered the cinnamon toast appetizer. The plate arrived with four perfectly toasted pieces of bread sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. It was incredibly delicious and we literally inhaled every piece.
Two of us ordered huevos rancheros. The plate came with two fried eggs, spanish rice, black beans, sour cream, three kinds of salsa and flour tortillas. It was fantastic! I would order this over and over again. It satisfies your morning craving for eggs, but also your savory craving.
We also tried the spinach and mushroom eggs benedict. It arrived in a beautiful presentation, the eggs were cooked perfectly and the spinach and mushrooms were a nice change from the typical benedict.
We also ordered the Plain Jane scramble, which was scrambled eggs, bacon, potato hash, and a slice of toast. This diner also ordered a side of a bagel and cream cheese, which she said was disappointing.
We also ordered a side of potato hash and a side of French fries for the table. Both varieties of potato were delish!
In addition to the long wait, we also experienced some lackluster service. Our waiter seemed irritated when we asked for more coffee or water, and the waitress assigned to continually clear plates from our table literally took plates out from under us while we were still eating. Given that their was no longer a line outside, it seemed unnecessary to rush us like that.
Though the food was sublime (it always is), my out of towners were left feeling disappointed and annoyed by the wait and the service.
Word to the wise, if you are interested in the Pajama Brunch, come early!
