Brunch & Drinks for Two - Up to 47% Off Brunch & Dinner
What We Love An instant favorite, chef Asia Mei’s Southie restaurant welcomes diners at all hours with an eclectic, high-low menu. Brunch stands out from the competition with dishes like tater tot poutine, cinnamon French toast sticks and eggs with crispy polenta, roasted prosciutto and spicy tomato sauce. Shake things up with creative cocktails like the Manmosa (made with Miller High Life) and the Shine Spritz (Ford gin, fresh lemon, Aperol and prosecco). Named to Boston Globe’s list of the 50 best new restaurants in 2016, Moonshine 152 has also been praised by Zagat, The Improper Bostonian, Thrillist and more.
A California native, Asia Mei spent years developing her culinary skills at local spots like Hamersley’s Bistro, Franklin Southie and even Whole Foods. Last year, she finally launched her own restaurant, mixing her many influences with a high-low approach to dining. At Moonshine 152, rangoons come stuffed with jalapeño crab and drizzled with spicy honey. Crispy flounder is served with fried pickled green tomatoes and spicy uni-shrimp butter, while a miso-sake glazed haddock is served with ginger-sauteed sugar snap peas. Equally enticing is the dessert menu, which ranges from warm sticky toffee bread pudding to the mysterious “Sex on the Beach” sorbet.
Done up with workshop-like chairs, open shelves and exposed piping, the casual dining room is packed all hours of the day. In fact, guests often stick around until the wee hours, ordering off the late-night menu until the kitchen closes at 1:30 a.m. Whether you want to kick off the weekend with crab eggs Benedict or finish the night with Chef Mei’s acclaimed buttermilk-fried chicken wings, you’re always welcome at this Southie hotspot.
