Brunch: Some people call it #basic, but I call paying $35 for endless booze and food to be a smart investment. Having lived in DC for (almost) four years now, I thought I'd share my favorite spots. All - clearly - are bottomless.
One // El Centro
I have a secret weakness for Mexican food. $35 gets you endless margaritas, mimosas, and some other speciality cocktails along with endless tapas for two hours. I like the one on Wisconsin in Georgetown, but if you're looking to go out afterwards I suggest the one on 14th.
Two // The Fainting Goat
I've only been here once, but the time I did the food was FANTASTIC. Bottomless is $17 and you get to pick your own flavor.
Three // Medium Rare
They have a location up in Cleveland Park and another over near the Capitol. Their steak frites are great, but they also have normal brunch options. At $25 for everything, this place is a bargain.
Four // Local 16
Super fun if you're going with a big group. At $27 for bottomless plus an entree, it too is a good deal.
Five // Zengo
If you like Asian, this is a great brunch spot. Everything is small places, but the food (and drinks) are bottomless.
Six // Maxime Streak Frites
Similar to Medium Rare, but with a bigger menu. It's right on M Street in Georgetown and the pastries are awesome.
Six // Southern Hospitality
Chicken-n-waffles, shrimp and grits, the works. It's one of my favorite spots to hit up in the summer.
Seven // Policy
This isn't my favorite place, but instead of two hours you get three. The food is good, but - if I'm being honest - not great.
Eight // Farmers, Fishers, and Bakers
It's a very GW/Georgetown locale, but there are a ton of different options even though I'm not a fan of buffets. The food is good and the service is always fast.
Nine // Kapnos
When here for my 22nd birthday this year for brunch. A bit on the pricer side, but it's not as rowdy as some of the other places (looking at you Local 16).
Ten // Kellari Taverna
Actually went to this place in NYC for brunch and loved it. Had no idea they had a place here in DC. The food is authentic Greek and the mimosas are made with high-end champagne (no cheap crap).
11 // Cava Mezze
Mimosas are a penny and $30 gets you endless Greek/Mediterranean tapas. Really fun to go and sit outside in the summer when the weather's nice. The Mimosas are also served in water glasses #score.
