Poste: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

Like your Bloody Marys extra-spicy—or extra-bacony? Make your own at Poste. Photograph by Scott Suchman.

Breakfast prices run steep at the Hotel Monaco’s brasserie. A
simple Irish breakfast costs $17—but with crisp blood sausage, charred
tomatoes, fried eggs, peppery potatoes, and a crock of perfectly seasoned
baked beans, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better fry-up in town. Even
more decadent is the egg-topped, béchamel-doused croque madame,
in which grilled ham and slightly sweet Comté cheese are sandwiched
between brioche slices. Monday through Friday 7 to 10 am, Saturday and
Sunday 8 to 3.
