I am very excited to announce our October brunch! From the in-house baked goods to  the lobster grits, this brunch is sure to leave us talking. The brunch in question, Catalyst Restaurant in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA.

  1. Panko French Toast! Sounds amazing.

      I like the idea that they make their own ketchup! The three items I’d like most to try are the: 1.) Catalyst Burger (there are so many elements I’d like to see how well each are prepared and how well each item chosen to be included marries with the other ingredients) 2.) Duck Confit Salad with Pistachio Vinaigrette (sounds delish!) and the 3.) Poached Farm Egg, Tournedo of Beef, Lobster Grits, Hollandaise as the lobster grits sound like something I’d not get the chance to try elsewhere.

      Hope to be joining you and the other diners on the 14th. Thanks for this super opportunity.

  2. I want to go!! Mmm, skillet coffee cake. Alas, I most likely could not make the trip that weekend 😦
