Last minute Sunday brunch for a group

AnnieP | Apr 2, 2008 09:47 PM

Hi- My 96 yr old uncle is coming up from Florida this weekend with his grandson for a small graveside ceremony marking the anniversary of his wife's death. This will be at 10am Sunday, and won't take long. The cemetery is on the West Roxbury/Brookline line and they have a 3pm flight home. I asked about brunch, and if they wanted me to make a reservation. Number is a bit uncertain, but could be as many as 13 or 14. I had thought the Metropolitan Club in Chestnut Hill was the obvious choice for its ability to accommodate a large group as well as its location, but I see that they don't open until 11:30, and I'm a little concerned that this will be cutting it too close for them (my cousin had asked me to make an 11am reservation). I know I may be asking the impossible to come up with a place on short notice that meets the location and timing requirements, has availability, and isn't too upscale or ethnic (my uncle is amazingly spry and intact for his age, but as you might expect, likes the basics). The group will also include 4 kids, a 10 yr old and 3 teens. As for the food, I know my uncle would like places like Zaftig's and Joan and Ed's, but neither is well-suited for a large group, nor would they take a reservation. He likes Joe's American Grille (he has had dinner there before), but I don't want to head too far in the wrong direction. I may be asking the impossible here, but at least I'm asking the right people. Thanks in advance.
