Before you settle in for a night of dragons, White Walkers and epic sword battles, fuel up with a Hodor-sized feast at these “Game of Thrones” brunches in Boston.
In celebration of the hit HBO drama’s season 7 premiere on July 16, Gather will host a pair of brunches that weekend in honor of the show’s return. The restaurant, located at District Hall in the Seaport, will serve up “Game of Thrones”-themed treats from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and 16.
While the menu is still being finalized, expect food and drink specials worthy of a Dothraki war lord. One brunch dish that’s set to make the list is slab bacon and biscuits with sausage gravy and cheese grits. Gather recently asked its fans to name the hearty meal in a social media contest, and will choose which title makes the menu on July 7, with the winner receiving a gift card to the restaurant.
Although Arya Stark, aka actress Maisie Williams, has been checking out Boston’s food scene recently alongside a few friends from the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things,” don’t expect her to swing by the festivities as she’s probably pretty busy filming her role in the upcoming “X-Men” spin-off flick.
In addition to the food and drinks, Gather will also have special “Game of Thrones”-inspired activities on hands for guests to take part in. Inside seating for the bruches is limited, though, so make sure to reserve a spot ahead of time. Patio seating will be available as well, but only on a first come, first serve basis if the weather holds up.
