Five Stars Meet Chile Rellenos

Cora and I went to East Coast Grill in Inman Square Cambridge, MA (Map) for brunch after having an amazing dinner there a few weeks prior. Plus she wanted to hit their make your own bloody mary bar.

With Taqueria La Mexicana's amazing chile rellenos just around the corner, I decided to see how those from East Coast Grill measured up. And hit the bloody mary bar.

Priced at $11.75 and available only during Sunday brunch, here's the menu description:

Stuffed with Smoked Duck, Jack Cheese, Cilantro, Roasted Potatoes, Garlic Seared Greens & Loca Salsa Rojo

Restaurants with table service are frequently ineligible for Burrito Blog coverage, but this meal needs to be shared. People need to be notified. It was just that good.

I was completely blown away. Most nice restaurants seem to mutilate my favorite Mexican dishes during the gourmetization process. Not so here. The duck was tender with the perfect complement of greens and potatoes.

The bloody mary didn't hurt either. Best Sunday brunch in recent memory.
