Brunch at the Fenway Hotel is located at the Hew Parlor and Chophouse. This bright and airy spot offers the perfect combination of modern details and luxurious comfort. Their marble tables and the rattan accents are the perfect backdrop for their amazingly crafted dishes. We love this spot for brunch for their five star service. Guests compare brunch at the Hew to that of a top-tier hotel.
We recommend the Chophouse Omelette, cooked perfectly and filled with shaved ribeye meat, Fontina cheese, and some refreshing roasted red peppers. Topped with crispy fried shallots, all ingredients in this dish are perfectly seasoned. If you’re looking for a sweeter side, order their Cinnamon Oatmeal with cooked apples, roasted almonds, and sweet molasses to pull it all together.
Lucky Lobster is a casual spot with specialty seafood dishes and a fresh raw bar. Served in a sleek bar and outdoor patio, this is a great restaurant to kick back with a few appetizers and plenty of drinks. We love their open air space during the summer, located right off of the Pinellas Trail.
We highly recommend their Lobster Benedict, served with home fries and a side of seasonal fruit. They also have a great Smoked Salmon Platter, with smoked salmon, capers, bagels, and cream cheese.
Brunch is served on the weekends from 10:30am to 4:30pm. You can also order from their lunch or dinner menus – so you can enjoy their raw bar in the morning as well! Check out their brunch menu here for all of their different options!
