Every year before Easter I post the best Sunday Brunches around. This year we have a few new restaurants to the list. Make sure to get your reservations before Sunday.
Sunday Brunch is a ritual for a lot of people, but where to go is always a chore. I know that every single restaurant these days has brunch and it is hard to decide where to go. I wanted to write up a list of great places that I have gone for brunch, to make your lives easier. Plus, a lot of these places are not that well known and will allow you to call today for reservations.
One of my new favorites is the brunch at the Pienza Italian Market at the Gaylord National hotel at the National Harbor. The buffet is like one in vegas. It appears to be a quarter mile long. They offer everything from fresh baked pastries to custom omlets to a dessert bar with fresh custard. It is definately a place to go.
For Reservations call (301) 965-2000 – 201 Waterfront Street, National Harbor, MD 20745.
Hanks Oyster Bar offers fresh oysters and some of the best cocktails around. Nothing beats a good bloody mary in the morning. Especially at Sunday Brunch. I would recommend the fried oysters and the lobster bisque. The DC restaurant is located off the red line at dupont circle. The Alexandria restaurant is located just 4 blocks down King St. from the Blue or Yellow lines.
For Reservations call 1624 Q Street NW, Washington DC 20009, 202-462-HANK (4265) | 1026 King Street, Alexandria VA 22314, 703-739-HANK (4265).
Located on King Street this new American tavern hosts a lavish Easter Brunch. While it is one of the most expensive @ $50 a head, they have a great selection on the buffet.
For reservations call 703-842-2790, 480 King Street in the Hotel Monaco
Crystal City Sports Bar is located on 23rd street, Restaurant Row, of Crystal City. Just off the blue or yellow line. I know what you are thinking, a sports bar? But, the buffet that they set up on sundays is quite amazing. They offer fresh fruit every southern specialty that you can think of, and freshly made right in front of you Eggs Benedict. You can not beat the buffet for the price, just 12.99.
For reservations call 703-521-8215 – 529 23rd St S, Arlington, VA 22202.
Located on Wilson Blvd. in the heart of the Court House Neighborhood on the orange line. They offer an extensive buffet, including hand carved meats, along with a nice breakfast menu. Plus, they offer Guiness. It is a must if you are on the orange line this sunday.
For reservations call 703-525-3600 -2051 Wilson Blvd. Arlington, VA 22201.
Chadwicks serves classic American fare. They offer standard brunch items till 4PM on the weekends. There is one downfall to Chadwicks, country potatoes instead of hashbrowns. I know it isn’t much but it is enough to make it so that I have to find a different place for my father. What can I say, the man loves crispy hashbrowns. Besides the hashbrowns the brunch is super nice. They have a nice selection of morning cocktails and it is right on the water. Who could ask for more, with the exception of hashbrowns.
For reservations call 703-836-4442, 203 The Strand, Alexandria, VA 22314
Acadiana offers a great brunch prix-fixe menu. Just $32 and includes 3 courses and either a bloody mary or a blood orange mimosa. I am a sucker for either of those cocktails. Centrally located between the blue, orange or red lines near mount vernon square.
For reservations call 202.408.8848 – 901 New York Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20001
Well I know that this list is not complete and does not include every single place that offers brunch. But, this is a list of places that I recommend for Sunday Easter Brunch. I hope that you enjoy.
