Grazing with the brunch bunch
Red Rock Bistro & Bar
This North Shore joint also jumps at Sunday brunch, thanks to the rotating roster of jazz and R&B artists who take the stage at noon. The a la carte menu offers breakfast lovers the likes of challah French toast or simple omelets, while hungry folks can tuck into steak and eggs with pancakes and hollandaise sauce or the burger "fixer-upper" with a shot of tequila on the side. There is an extensive menu of margaritas and martinis. 141 Humphrey St., Swampscott, 781-595-1414, www.redrockbistro.com. Brunch Sunday 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m., music noon-3. Entrees $8.50-$27.
