Instead of booking a power lunch for that next business meeting, reserve a table for breakfast at one of these five powerhouses. Here’s a look at Boston’s best early morning eateries to get that deal done.
1 The Bristol
One of the best spots in Boston for a power breakfast is The Bristol tucked inside the Four Seasons. Over an order of Huevos Rancheros, lobster Benedict or steak and eggs, you can close that major deal while enjoying a beautiful view of the Boston Public Garden. The powerhouse restaurant has been a favorite of local business people as well as celebrities who come here for a taste of the egg white frittatas, brioche French toast and local corned beef hash with poached eggs and Boston baked beans.

2 Bar Boulud
Start the morning off right over at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel with some French favorites like eggs Benedict with Parisian ham, brioche French toast or the Viennoiserie (a basket of French pastries). Early risers can also enjoy wild mushroom quiche, lemon ricotta buttermilk pancakes and a hearty organic Vermont egg omelet served with rustic potatoes made even better with the addition of Gloucester lobster. (Weekend brunch indulgences include our favorite Croque Monsieur topped with ham, melted gruyere and a fried farm egg).

3 Artisan Bistro
Nutella crepes, chocolate chip pancakes and pecan cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing will satiate any sweet tooth craving at Artisan Bistro, but business folk come to The Ritz-Carlton, Boston for the truffle duck with wild mushrooms, aged provolone and jumbo asparagus. Try The Tremont, a commanding combination of eggs, bacon or sausage, crispy breakfast potatoes and toast or the crab cake Benedict topped with crisp Canadian bacon, creamy Hollandaise sauce served on a toasted organic Vermont muffin.
10 Avery Street Boston, MA 02111
4 Mooo Restaurant
Over at the XV Beacon Hotel, nothing says powerful better than kicking the morning off with breakfast in a steakhouse. We recommend the New York sirloin served up with three eggs and a side of homefries or the 12-ounce ribeye served with sunny side eggs, salsa verde, tomatoes and avocado. If a steak isn’t your thing in the morning, lighter fare includes a three-egg frittata Florentine made with spinach, exotic mushrooms, oven roasted tomatoes and gruyere cheese as well as a bowl of hearty Irish oatmeal with raisins, blueberries and brown sugar.
15 Beacon Street Boston, MA 02108
5 Rowes Wharf Sea Grille
When it comes to early morning dining, there is nothing better than enjoying a dish of New England style corned beef and eggs with poached eggs with a waterfront view. That’s just what Rowes Wharf Sea Grille delivers at the Boston Harbor Hotel where business diners have a front row view to a beautiful early morning sunrise over the harbor. We love the full American breakfast that comes complete with everything you need to get your morning started – two eggs, bacon, ham or sausage, homefries, toast, coffee or tea and a glass of orange or grapefruit juice. Finish it off with a celebratory glass of champagne when you conclude the deal.
