Five New Brunch Options in Town

The weekend will take an egg on that.

Thursday
Saturday
Cracklins and Bacon at Mintwood Place
FOR GALLIC HANGOVER CURES

Cracklins and Bacon at Mintwood Place

If your Friday night in Adams Morgan is rough, you can now return to the scene of the crime at this new French gastropub. On your plate: Bacon & Eggs made of pork cracklins and pickled eggs and a Hangover Special that involves beef patties, bacon and ranch dressing. A favorite of every French chef.

A Clubby Brunch Party at Lost Society
FOR DAYTIME BOTTLE SERVICE

A Clubby Brunch Party at Lost Society

Black is white, down is up, and rooftops and bottle service are no longer just nocturnal endeavors. Lost Society’s huge rooftop is now hosting a reservations-only weekend brunch party with DJs, bottomless mimosas and bottle service. No, the DJ never takes his sunglasses off.

Saturdays starting Apr 21, 1-5pm, $40, Lost Society, 2001 14th St NW, reserve at 202-737-3783

Sunday
Bottomless Cocktails at the Federalist
FOR DRINKING LIKE HAMILTON

Bottomless Cocktails at the Federalist

Bourbon milk punch. The bottomless kind. We probably don’t need to go on, but just in case, the new colonial-themed dining room is adding chicken confit omelets, Pennsylvania Dutch pancakes and the Settler’s Breakfast (flat iron steak and eggs) to the mix. Beware of whiskey rebellions.

Sundays starting Apr 22, 11am-2pm, $35 ($55 with bottomless cocktails), The Federalist, 1177 15th St NW, 202-587-2629, see the menu

Pork Confit and Eggs at Boundary Road
FOR A SUNDAY MORNING SCENE

Pork Confit and Eggs at Boundary Road

The Obamas went trawling for campaign cash here a few weeks ago. You’ll settle for a peanut-butter-and-banana Monte Cristo or maybe the Gentleman Will Take a Chance, a mashup of pork confit, peppers, onions, potatoes and egg. Of course, your Super PAC is a little light these days.

Spring Rolls and Donuts at Beau Thai
FOR HOMEMADE ASIAN HOOCH

Spring Rolls and Donuts at Beau Thai

Beau Thai serves its new Sunday brunch only in the afternoon. And in those precious hours between Meet the Press and 60 Minutes, it’s time to get exotic. Like banana and cinnamon spring rolls, Thai donuts and ground-pork omelets. And naturally, some housemade lemongrass limoncello. Toast Mike Wallace with it.
