My take: It was a pleasant Sunday afternoon indulging myself with brunch classics at Ash & Elm. I particularly enjoyed the Lobster bisque and minestrone soup, the seafood platter especially the lobsters and oysters. The baked Cod Fish with Fennel Confit and Saffron sauce and Boston Lobster Risotto left a great impression on me. I say they are a must-try! I was also very impressed by the newly refurbished Ash & Elm, the skylight canopy that runs the length of the dining area providing a sense of movement.
