This might be one of the most exciting weeks of the year for New England Patriots fans with the Super Bowl in Houston just days away, but here’s food news to distract you…OK, and one Tom Brady-themed cocktail to sip on February 5.
The Mushroom Omelette on Juliet's brunch menu.
Juliet Starts Serving Brunch
Easily the best meal of the week, brunch is one part reminder that it’s the weekend, another part permission to drink before noon. Juliet, which has conquered breakfast and fine dining dinner service, is now offering brunch with options like breakfast tacos, oyster stew, a hearty risotto, and a pastry basket we would never pass on. 257 Washington St., 617-718-0958
Gre.Co Opens on Newbury Street
Greek food is now definitely a trend in Boston as Demetri Tsolakis of Committee opens his first Gre.Co location in the Back Bay on February 7. Think of it as quality Greek food fast with menu items that stay very true to the food Tsolakis remembers as a kid in Greece. Opt for gyros like the Classic Pork and the Classic Chicken (with homemade honey mustard sauce) or make your own, and don’t skip the loukoumades, Greece’s answer to the donut, which they’ll be giving out for free on Wednesday. Gre.Co’s versions are covered in hazelnut sauce, oreos, or simply honey. 225 Newbury St., 617-572-3300
