around town: pajama brunch at tremont 647

i've only been to this south end spot twice, so this might be a little presumptuous, but i'm pretty sure that tremont 647 is my spirit restaurant. you know, like a spirit animal, except it's a restaurant. i actually wrote about it in a guest blog post a while back, so things are getting kiiiind of serious now.

it's not just the menu (to which i nod and say "yep, yep, yep, that too" to almost every item), nor the warm and sorta whimsical ambiance, nor the extremely attractive bartenders and waiters (just keepin' it real). all of these things combine to make this place a truly special eatery. oh, and chef andy husbands was on "hell's kitchen" some years ago, so that's pretty legit.

i stopped in for their "pajama brunch" with a friend this weekend -- sans pajamas -- and it was the perfect escape from the torrential downpour outside. things were off to a great start when coffee was promptly delivered to our table by a server in HIS PJs. cute.

to start, we split the house-made cherry cheesecake pop-tart. there was an awkward food moan or two.

my friend ordered the croissant breakfast sammy (maple sausage, fried egg, cheese, and whatever "roasted garlic herb pistou" is) and i went for the pork carnitas benny (hash browns topped with seasoned pulled pork, poached eggs, and hollandaise). i could tell you how amazing it was, but the picture really speaks for itself.

perhaps best of all, the staff is super-friendly. i think we were greeted genuinely upon our arrival and thanked upon our departure by every single server and host in the joint. 

so, who's coming back with me for restaurant week?!
