Restaurant review: Abe & Louie’s

This past weekend I joined a friend for brunch at Abe & Louie’s in the Back Bay.  Abe & Louie’s is an upscale steakhouse with an excellent reputation, but I’d not been there for quite awhile – and never for brunch so I was looking forward to my date with my friend.

The brunch menu ranges from $12 – $35.  Since my friend doesn’t eat red meat and I was in the mood for an omelette our brunch was on the more affordable end of the price range. Brunch for the two of us cost $44 plus tip; a splurge for sure but well within expectations.

Brunch started with coffee and a warm assortment of breads we both quickly devoured (okay – I ate most of the basket, but I was hungry).Abe & Louie's

Service was impeccable and Abe & Louie’s brunch menu has all the staples you would want (omelettes, pancakes, french toast, etc…) in addition to the customary steak options you would expect.

I ordered the Newbury omelette $12 which comes with ham, feta, onions, pepperoncini and olives, and my friend ordered the crab cake bennedict $19.  Both came accompanied with crispy hash on the side.abe and louie brunch

While I enjoyed brunch, I doubt I’d rush back to Abe & Louie’s.  There are   so many great options in Boston and the only thing memorable about our brunch was the company who was with me. However, if you have a hankering for steak and eggs or simply want to try out brunch, I recommend making your reservation for 11:30 or earlier.  The tables are very close to each other but the space did not seem to fill until after 12pm so coming a bit earlier affords you more privacy.
