What makes Foreign Affairs brunch stand out among other North Shore establishments catering to Sunday noshing? A relaxed atmosphere, a great trio jazz band, and chef Ryan McGovern’s incredible farm-to-table creations. A must-have, if on the menu, is the Cod Benedict in a light hollandaise sauce—this dish is as close to divinity as you can get on a Sunday without attending a Catholic mass. The mimosas made with fresh-squeezed orange juice are a heavenly elixir for your Sunday brunch.
