Stephanie's On Newbury
This Back Bay institution has always been a popular pick for people watching; it has without doubt one of the best patios in Boston. And after its recent renovation, it has also taken a new approach to the early side of eating. Over the summer Stephanie's (finally!) launched weekday breakfast from 7:30 AM-11:30 AM, where you can find a mix of light early-riser favorites (like egg white frittata) and heartier plates for those of us who lean toward lunch even in the AM: like the breakfast burger, topped with fried egg. In addition, the pre-existing weekend brunch hours have been expanded further into the morning, and now runs from 9 AM-3 PM.
Must-Try: From the new eats we're all about the Breakfast Quesadilla ($15) folded with scrambled eggs, Monterey jack cheese, salsa, jalapeno, black beans and caramelized onions. Add guac and salsa, of course.
