Over the weekend we grabbed our "go to" brunch friends and headed to Fenway for brunch at Citizen Public House. The restaurant is set up perfectly for a group of friends looking to catch up over cocktails and brunch. It's quiet, has large booths and upscale chic decor 👌. The menu is small/medium with six brunch specific entrees plus a few salads and sandwiches. They also have a brunch cocktail list with four different boozy treats. We settled on the house made Bloody Mary with the mushroom and goat cheese omelet, the crispy shrimp po boy sandwich, huevos rancheros and a side of tots. The portion sizes are hearty to say the least. The omelet is delicious; light and fluffy, oozing with fresh cheese and just the right amount of veggies inside. The Crispy Shrimp Po Boy sandwich is more like like a pho po boy because it has plain mayo on it instead of the Cajun style remoulade. This lack of flavor makes the Citizen Public House po boy a good sandwich, but nothing great. The Huevos Rancheros are a hit. Unlike most huevos, these have heaps of rice mixed in the with beans, making the dish extra filling and dense. We also appreciate the mass quantities of avocado mixed in to the dish. If you like things hot, definitely add a liberal amount of hot sauce because as is, these Huevos are mild. Obviously the tots are amazing, but let's be real, it's hard to f up tots. The quality of the food is good and matches what you'd expect from a modern, upscale eating establishment. The prices are reasonable but slant towards the higher end. Everything stays under $20 though.
