The vast majority of restaurants in Beacon Hill haven't changed their menu in decades. That's okay for classic places like Paramount or Toscano who are usually packed with both locals and tourists regardless, but classic isn't necessarily what all Beacon Hillers are looking for in a local restaurant, especially in a city that's going through somewhat of a food revolution everywhere else. That's why The Tip Tap Room was an instant success when it opened in June. It gave younger residents a much needed haven for craft beer and exciting food.

The same Beacon Hill outdatedness goes for brunch, and once again Brian Poe and The Tip Tap come to the rescue. As of early January, Tip Tap is now serving brunch, and giving yet another much needed update to the Beacon Hill dining scene. The menu is, as all Poe menus are, a little wacky. He takes classic dishes and spices them up with inventive ingredients and unexpected combinations of sweet and savory.

Here are some highlights from The Tip Tap Room's Tipsy Brunch:


Muffins and Stuff: Chef Poe’s blend of fresh breads with breakfast caramel butter


Tip Tap Benedict: butter fried smashed potato cake dusted with english muffin crumbs, cured ham, poached eggs, beer cheese hollandaise


Baked Berry Irish Cut Oatmeal: topped with mint, white chocolate mousse and cinnamon sugared pecans


The Signature Omelet: basil, brie, mushrooms, truffle shavings and asparagus


Jalapeno Corned Beef Hash: topped with a poached egg


Croque Madame: griddled ham with gruyere cheese, dijon, & fried egg
