To get a bit of discussion going and to discover some new places, I thought I’d start a thread on area brunches. We go out for brunch almost every Saturday morning, usually in the Cambridge/Boston area.
This morning, we headed for the first time to Sulmona in the Kendall Square vicinity in Cambridge. We enjoyed it quite a bit and will head back at some point. I had eggs benedict with prosciutto cotto and kale. My husband had the sweet cheeks pizzetta, with guanciale and three fried eggs. I really enjoyed my benedict, especially the hollandaise. It was beautifully emulsified and very lemony, maybe too much for some palates. The eggs were nicely poached and the accompanying potato square, if rather dense, was crispy. (Yes, that is a side of extra hollandaise to dip my potatoes in, cholesterol be damned.) My husband’s pizza was tasty and had plenty of guanciale funk, which, again, might be too much for some. The sunny side eggs were perfectly cooked. Our server was particularly warm and gracious. The space is quite lovely, with interesting metal work around the bar. We’ll try dinner there soon.
