5 Brunches People Are Talking About

Buffet Brunch at Muse

Muse at The Corcoran Gallery of Art

Muse is the inspiration for my latest brunch craze. Served on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, from 11 am-2 pm, guests are invited to try a true market brunch for $25 made by Chef Todd Gray. With a menu that is everchanging, all I can assure you about your visit is that you won’t be disappointed. On my visit the roasted applewood bacon, egg casserole and Muse style eggs Florentine fulfilled my brunch cravings. With a buffet (*typically I cringe when using that word, but this buffet is not like the cold, rubbery ones your used to), lined with a fresh, seasonal variety, you can have your pick of the litter. Make a day of it: Guests that brunch at Muse get $5 off the full admission to the Corcoran Gallery of Art.


Serving up breakfast pizzas, spaghetti carbonara and cinnamon knots with nutella under one roof on Saturday’s and Sundays from 12 pm-3 pm. The Bloody Sparkling (*Blood orange puree & prosecco) and Bloody Mary (*olive & mozzarella) add to the mix of breakfast cocktails.


The last time I visited Vinoteca was probably when it first started its brunch. My how things have changed. The menu has evolved into a more filling selection (*I remember feeling kind of hungry after my first experience there…) and the bottomless mimosa’s for $10 are a steal. Saturday and Sunday brunch are from 11 am-3 pm.

The Lincoln

All you can eat eggs and waffles for $29. People are flocking over for the weekend deal and the $6 make your own Bloody Mary’s. Sunday brunch is from 11 am-4 pm.

The Hamilton

Though not as often as it should be, The Hamilton gospel brunch is from 12:30 pm-2 pm ($25) on a varying schedule. It does not occur every week so you have to catch it when you can like this weekend, March 25, 2012, Jacques Johnson will perform a 60 minute set while patrons brunch on the selections of the week.

  1. I just had brunch at Graffiato this past weekend and it was delicious. My other favorite brunches are Perry’s in Adams Morgan (I love the entertainment) and Kramerbooks in Dupont.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog
    writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
