USA TODAY NAMES THE TOP 10 PLACES TO BRUNCH IN DC.
This upscale restaurant attracts a wide mix of politicos and world citizens longing for South Carolina’s Lowcountry cooking. Barbecued salmon fillet, shrimp and grits, Frogmore stew (seafood, no frogs) and Southern fried chicken are menu classics that come with cornbread, biscuits and lots of animated conversation.
Vegetarians find warm embrace in meatless dishes like sautéed black-eyed pea cakes. Fried catfish, biscuit-battered French toast, country ham with gravy and other brunch delights also gain wide approval. Some say that this type of food is a bit heavy — others simply nod and butter another biscuit. Reservations are recommended. METRO: McPherson Square (202-393-4499)
