Cheap champagne and poached eggs. Yum! This is our idea of a fun Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon…weekend brunch is what we’re ranting about. The Heights, named perfectly for the ever-changing Columbia Heights neighborhood, adds just the right flavor to the neighborhood, literally. The service is great and the restaurant almost feels a little like home away from home if you minus the other patrons eating around you;-) The poached eggs are our favorites (*JKGF is a huge fan of poached eggs with everything!) and the Crab, Asparagus, Red Pepper and Cheddar Omelet is nothing to sleep on either:-) Brunch starts at 9 am and ends at 4 pm (Sat.-Sun.) for those of us who sleep til 2 pm on the weekends…this gives you plenty of time to roll out of bed and over to some goodies that will hopefully calm that hangover that’s lurking from the night before…The Low Down: A bottle of champagne with your brunch meal is $25 (*split it with a friend and celebrate Saturday/Sunday brunch! We really look for any reason/celebration to drink brunch champagne…;-)Disclaimer: We don’t know if we still were thinking about the high amount of alcohol consumed the night before or if we really did enjoy the service, but we know we didn’t feel annoyed and bothered by our time there, so it must’ve been good. Go and hopefully you’ll have the same experience we did but we can’t promise anything;-)
