Where to Eat Brunch This Weekend: The Blue Room

By Scott Kearnan  |  August 15, 2014

Today would have been Julia Child's 102nd birthday, and her legacy hasn't dimmed a bit. The culinary icon spent many decades of her life, of course, in Cambridge — where her actual home kitchen was transformed into the television set used for three separate cooking shows. To see it today, you'd have to head to Washington, DC, where it is on display at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History. But you can still taste what came out of it. On Sunday from 11 AM-2:30 PM, The Blue Room in Kendall Square will host a brunch in her honor, spotlighting dishes culled from her cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” For $27 you'll receive a big buffet that features coq au vin, ratatouille, boeuf a la Bourguignonne, and tomates à la Provençale, to name a few. Can't make it? The Child-themed brunch will recur on the other two remaining Sundays in August, giving ample time to raise a glass — or a plate — to a local legend. 1 Kendall Square; 617-494-9034
