Where to Have Brunch This Weekend: LongCross Kitchen and Bar

Next time you find yourself looking for a new restaurant to try, consider heading over to LongCross Kitchen and Bar. This newly opened eatery has only been around for a few months, but the early reviews are positive. The food menu is focused on casual-yet-elevated pub fare, while the bar focuses on craft beer. You might pair a plate of crispy chicken tenders with a light lager, for example, or go for a pesto flatbread pizza with a dark, rich porter to wash it down. 

The dining room is modern and bright, and features a long, u-shaped bar and plenty of high-tops in the center of the room (in addition to traditional restaurant table seating), which promises to make this restaurant a popular happy hour stop for Medford locals. Don’t forget this place also serves brunch on the weekends, so keep it in mind next time you’re craving waffles and bacon.
