With a city as brunch-obsessed as DC, there are plenty of options for bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys, and more. We’ve curated the perfect list of picks to soothe your weekend hangovers.
It’s a toss-up between what we like better at Mango Tree’s brunch: the stunning dark-wood interior, the sweet, refreshing drinks, or the spicy, flavorful cuisine. Located in DC’s City Center, this upscale Thai newcomer provides bottomless mimosas made with fresh juice. The Eastern-inflected menu features delicious, innovative dishes like an omelette pad Thai with steamed jasmine rice and Thai street-style fried chicken.
Jumbo Slice might be king of the late-night pizza scene, but Columbia Heights’ Red Rocks undoubtedly rules the weekend morning crowd. The all-you-can drink deal here, which features flavors like poinsettia mimosa and bellinis, comes with a customizable 9” personal Neapolitan pizza with toppings like fennel sausage, chorizo, and sunny-side-up eggs. Not into breakfast pizza? Go for the tangy lemon ricotta pancakes or the avocado-and-bacon breakfast panino.
Only a few blocks from the St. Gregory, this nautically-inspired seafood joint features a bivalve-heavy brunch menu and decor straight out of a Cape Cod clambake. For your appetizer, load up on the rich, creamy lobster bisque or a plate of briny, delicious seasonal oysters. When it comes to the brunch entree, you can’t go wrong with picks like the smoked trout hash or crabcake sandwich.
It’s a myth that brunch is a weekend-only activity, and luckily 15th Street’s Commissary is more than happy to prove it wrong. Stop by this homey, rustic neighborhood restaurant to take advantage of the workweek bottomless special. While you’re lounging with a pitcher of Commissary’s finest champagne-and-orange concoctions, make sure to try the feta-and-avocado Huevos Rancheros or a sumptuous Pancake Platter, which comes with made-to-order flapjacks, eggs, and your choice of breakfast meat.
One of DC’s stellar foodie spots also features a prime bottomless brunch. The seasonal New American spot in Adams Morgan is the perfect spot for locavores, with dishes like an eggs benedict dubbed the best in the district and Southern-style shrimp and grits. Best of all, the restaurant doesn’t restrict diners to mimosas or Bloody Marys—thirsty brunchers can also drink their fill of the cocktail of the day.
