Mother's Day Brunch

Hooray, one of my all-time favorite neighborhood restaurants, La Boca, will soon be serving a weekend brunch.  The restaurant is popular with our guests at The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn for its location (just a short four blocks away) and fabulous food.  Famous for its innovative menu of tapas, La Boca will begin serving brunch the weekend of May 7 and 8, just in time for Mother's Day festivities.  The brunch menu will be available from 9am-3pm.

Like the restaurant's lunch and dinner menus, brunch at La Boca is also tapas-oriented.  You will want to order a variety of dishes so everyone at the table can enjoy a range of delightful flavors.  I have always found the staff at La Boca to be very helpful should you have any dilemmas around ordering.  Selections from the new brunch menu are:

Cardamon-date bread with fresh Spanish goat cheese & local, seasonal fruit.
Fried Egg Panini iwth jamon Serrano, Bacon or Smoke Salmon
Jamon Bikini - melted manchego Panini wrapped in Spanish ham
Huevos Flamencos - casuela of chorizo, potatoes, jamon Serrano, pepper & onions topped with two eggs
Huevos Revueltos - scrambled eggs iwth asparagus, manchego on olive oil toasted baguette
Omelette with avocado, arugula & drunken goat cheese
Fried oyster-bacon bocadillo

For the daring, try the Bloody Mary Raw Oyster Shooters with a spash of fino electrico sherry.

I have to say, every dish I have ever ordered at La Boca has been sensational.  While I have not had any of the above brunch selections, I can only imagine they will be of the same calibre as the lunch and dinner dishes I have savored in the past.

La Boca is located in an intimate space so will be want to call ahead to reserve your table.
