We gravitate to this high-toned farm-to-table destination whenever were in the mood for brunch and whenever were trying to satisfy a group of disparate personalities. Service is attentive & polished

This breakfast heavy tavern features trendy brunch plates like short rib hash w/ horseradish sauce and pork belly eggs benedict. Pork belly eggs benedict!? What could possibly be better than that?

Stick with wine and charcuterie in the lounge or peer into the open kitchen from the dining room over a meal of fried sweetbreads, muscovy duck, and 12-hour roasted suckling pigs. [Eater 38 Member]

Despite being a hotel restaurant, Blue Duck does an admirable job of maintaining its own identity as a stellar spot for expertly and creatively crafted American cuisine.

A contender for best Brunch in DC. Sit outside and order the short rib hash, side of their seasonal veg. Next level status.

One of my favorite restaurants in the city, I have never had anything I haven't absolutely devoured and loved here. Dessert is truly where the gem lies - save room :)
