I had the pleasure of having Sunday brunch at J's in Bolton a few weeks ago. Not only was I blown away by how good it was, the price made it that much more enjoyable.
The setting is gorgeous, we had a window box table and had a view of the vineyard. It is a buffet brunch with the selection changing every time you get up for more! Although there were too many dishes to name them all, the strata and the mussels were great as well as the cheese selection and the peanut-crusted chicken skewers. We had a reservation for 1:30, but there may be more breakfast type dishes earlier in the day. The drinks were fabulous too with bellinis made with their own sparkling wines. The homemade desserts were made with such care and were amazing. And best of all, this all cost $18.50 not including alcoholic beverages. This brunch would have easily cost $50 in the city.
As if that were not enough, we went back to the shop afterwards and tasted a bunch of their wines, beers and spirits. They were surprisingly good, and to finish off the day, you could choose an apple to be fresh-dipped in caramel for $2, something I have always enjoyed.
Now, I want to go back to try their lunch and dinner menus. FYI, it only takes about 45 min. to get their from downtown Boston.
