Andy Husband’s Tremont 647 and adjoining Sister Sorel are longtime fixtures in the South End neighborhood restaurant and bar scenes. Serving hearty American cuisine with global spice, Tremont 647’s interior is done up in warm gray tones with pops of color. Next door is the sassier and more casual Sister Sorel, a mostly lounge space where the main focus is the colorful, serpentine shaped bar. During the busy weekend brunch rush, the two spaces become one to meet the demand for their fun and delicious brunch.
Folks flock here on the weekends for the restaurant’s pajama brunch–for the yummy, innovative brunch fare, the brunch cocktails and the fun atmosphere. The entire staff is decked out in PJs, bathrobes and slippers…and so are many of the diners. Feel free to wear yours!
Fantastic. The restaurant is always lively enough to drown out cranky kiddo noise and during prime family dining hours and brunch you’re likely to see kids at many of the tables. Special bonus–the chef/owner often circulates through the dining room, stopping to talk (and sometimes sing) to cranky toddlers so mom and dad can enjoy a few extra bites of food in peace.
The menu here changes often based on what’s in available locally and in season. You’ll see influences of BBQ (check out the award-winning ribs when available), and Southern fare as well as local produce and flavors. Favorites include:
- Steaks, pork and other roasted meats are a sure bet
- The rotating brunch Benedicts
- The pancake or french toast options
Tremont 647 does not have a kid’s menu. Most of the sides make great dinner options for the little guys, and the kitchen is usually able to offer some off menu options–just ask your server what they can do. When in doubt, go with the very tasty rice and beans.
