Island Creek Oyster Bar Brunch

29 Dec

I walk past Island Creek Oyster Bar every day on my way to work. I love the other venues within the Hotel Commonwealth: Hawthorne and Eastern Standard. When my friend Courtney asked if I wanted to get brunch one Sunday, I was happy she suggested Island Creek. It is so close to my apartment and has been on my list since I moved back to Boston a year and a half ago.

We started off with a Crispy Oyster slider on brioche roll with lime chile aïoli. This was my first oyster experience and I was left wanting more. The pairing of this slider in itself was oh so delectable.

Turn off salty and switch to sweet, I had the Challah French toast with bourbon caramel and banana. This portion was way too big, but so yummy. I love when this dish incorporates challah bread.

I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced brunch was. An oyster slider and incredible French Toast for all of $14. Don’t mind if I do.
