When I read that the January brunch gathering for the Boston Brunchers was going to be at Cafe Fleuri at the Langham Boston – well I let out a loud “Woo Hoo” and fist pumped a few times (no worries, I did this in a confined setting amongst other food bloggers who understand my passion for a great brunch!). Brunch has always been my favorite part of the day (it’s usually my motivation for waking up – is that sad? I don’t know) and I had been DYING to try the Langham’s legendary brunch. I walk past the Langham everyday for work and have had several business meetings there, but never have I been to the hotel on the weekend. (I admit it -- I can be a lazybones and going to the financial district always feels like a walk too far on the weekends).
So obviously, I was super excited that the Boston Brunchers party gave me the motivation to get my booty to Cafe Fleuri, but I was totally unprepared by how vast and expansive the brunch actually was! In my happy excited and hungry panic, I got totally overwhelmed and completely forgot to form a strategic plan of attack, which left me too full to try many of the items in the end (which of course, means I'll be heading back soon!).
In the meantime, I decided to create a little handy dandy reference guide for first time brunchers.
First, we have the breakfast bar. This table contains fresh cut fruits, croissants and pastries, and bagels. My advice: I would skip most items on this table (ex-berry bowl), since most of the items are pretty standard breakfast fair. Plus the carbs from the bagels and pastries will fill you up too fast. The fruit and granola yogurt parfait looks quite lovely though!
