Boston Brunchers is a group of bloggers who go to brunch together. Pretty awesome huh? Well this past Sunday they went to M3 in Davis Square. It is so close to my apartment and I really wanted to try this restaurant, so I had to make it!
When Dave and I first saw this new place, we kidded around saying we should open a restaurant across the street and name it M5. But enough of our lame joking around. M3 really stands for “Meat n’ Three”.
I really liked the interior. It was small but really trendy and retro feel with its tin ceilings, chalkboard walls and tables, and interesting light fixtures. The chairs were of all different shapes and sizes and didn’t necessarily match. This made it have a nice eclectic feel.
The first dish we had was the watermelon salad with goat cheese, pickled melon, mint, and cucumber. Well… you had me at goat cheese! This dish was refreshing and a good way to start the meal.
With the watermelon salad, we also got a sample of the watermelon mimosa and the bloody Mary, which I was a fan of because it had some kick to it and made me want more! I thought that it added a nice touch that the water was in a nice glass bottle and we drank out of mason jars. You almost felt like you were out in the country some place.
Next up was the Scotch Eggs-quail eggs with house sausage. I’ve never had these before, but they were a treat. I mean…anything fried pretty much makes the cut for me. I also enjoyed the pickled veggies. They were ALMOST as good as East Coast Grille’s pickled veggies.
We each had a sample of a chicken and biscuit which had sausage gravy. The biscuit pretty much melted in your mouth and the chicken was described to us as a homemade chicken nugget. It felt like a dessert it was so good.
Our next dish was the chicken and waffles. The waffles had cherries and pecans in them and were served with a Vermont maple syrup. The fried chicken was like nothing I have ever tasted before. We all were trying to be polite and use our fork and knife to eat it, but before we knew it, we all were using our fingers to get as much of the deliciousness that we could off the chicken bone!
Blueberry pancakes with a lemon ricotta and a house berry syrup came out and all our eyes got huge. I’m not usually a huge fan of pancakes, but these had a nice hint of lemon to them and the fresh fruit and lemon ricotta made them interesting. We were so stuffed that we had some pancakes left and I took some home for a snack the next day!
Our last dish was the vanilla french toast with apple butter syrup. When this dish came out, we all pretty much had our jaw drop. Chocolate covered bacon?! I think by this time, my stomach made room for this because there was no way I was leaving M3 without tasting this.
Do I recommend this place? YES! Brunch is supposed to make you feel gluttonous and happily full. Both missions accomplished here! My only suggestion is that you have to prepare yourself for a potential wait because it is a small restaurant. But when I was there it seemed like he traffic was moving pretty well.
Do you want to see what else you can get? Here are the menu that were there when I visited!
