Alie Sockol, sometimes known as “Boston’s Brunch Queen” is the Founder and CEO of Brunches of
Boston. She has reviewed over one hundred brunches and is always on the hunt for the next place to
try. As an ardent sun-lover, her ideal brunch is patio-side and includes eggs, lobster and goat cheese
with crispy, well-seasoned homefries. Especially when it comes to homefries, she means business; they
are some of her all-time favorite food. She’ll take a Bloody Mary any time (the spicier the better), and is
actively working on mastering the art of the Bloody Mary bar. When she’s not brunching you can find
her working on her fitness, volunteering with the Animal Rescue League of Boston or watching her
beloved New England Patriots dominate.
Caroline Pacewicz is a contributing writer for Brunches of Boston. She
considers herself a dedicated foodie and is always interested in trying new
restaurants. Her favorite brunch meal is anything with a perfectly poached
egg like Eggs Benedict or Avocado Toast (with an egg, of course). You will
almost always see her drinking a glass of bubbly with her meal – she is all
about that champagne campaign. During her free time you can find Caroline
in the kitchen channeling her inner Top Chef, trying out new fitness studios or
overindulging on Bravo.
Leigh Fishback is a Writer for Brunches of Boston, and a city transplant who is originally from Seattle, WA. She’s been living in Boston for just over a year, and ever since realizing her unfortunate hatred of Dunkin' Donuts, she’s been exploring the city one restaurant at a time to get a true feeling for Boston’s breakfast/brunch scene. In her opinion, mimosas are an appropriate drink addition to any meal, and she loves trying them with fun twists and different fruit purees. There’s not a single brunch meal she doesn’t like; but if she had to narrow it down, her favorite would be eggs cooked any way on top of an Asiago bagel, covered in avocado, pepper jack cheese, and pico-de-gallo. And always a side of crispy bacon—always. Besides brunch (and food in general), Leigh is an avid fan of Netflix, country music, working out, and shopping on Newbury Street with money she doesn’t have.
