Brio Chestnut Hill

Brio Tuscan Grille in Chestnut Hill is part of a national chain and conveniently located in the Chestnut Hill Square open-air shopping mall. Their brunch offerings looked good so on this gorgeous Sunday I headed down there. It's a surprisingly fast drive to get here despite the slowish traffic on Rte 9.

Of course, there is plenty of parking and they also have a nice patio for al fresco dining, weather permitting. It's the last days of February and we are hitting 55 today with almost no snow on the ground, how nice is this?

Very inviting and spacious inside.

There is also plenty of seating in the bar area. During the weekdays, they have a very reasonable bar menu with small plates.

A nice bread basket arrives. The crispy herb crusted flatbreads were delicious and you also get real butter. Nice linen napkins but paper covered table.

The brunch menu is very similar to their lunch menu with some brunch dishes added. I decided to try the Ham & Biscuit Benedict ($11.50). "Poached cage-free eggs, Cherrywood smoked ham, housemade biscuit, grilled asparagus, hollandaise, brunch potatoes." The eggs were very small and slightly undercooked, so there were a few snotty bits but this is better than overcooked. The thick slice of ham was delicious as was the crumbly biscuit. The hollandaise was fine and the asparagus was cooked perfectly and was delightful. The badly reheated potatoes, on the other hand, was pretty terrible and was also seriously greasy. This was too bad since the rest of the food was delicious. Service was fine and prompt.
