Brunch for four on a Saturday morning. Prix Fixe omelet menu is a great value by Boston standards and the food was delicious. Would absolutely go back.

Aquitaine is a good choice following a stroll through the architecturally intriguing South End, but you need a reservation, particularly on weekends. We dined on a bustling Thursday night but had gotten a reservation early that week. Classic French dishes: salade nicoise, croque monsieur, grilled...More
