Commissary

Logan Circle, 14th Street

3.36

The multiple menus are daunting at first, but worth sifting through for a smorgasbord of excellent breakfast fare.

December 12, 2020

Prost Review

Prost

Mt Vernon

3.69

Including steins of German beer in the bottomless package is a nice touch

October 24, 2020

Our server handled a bee situation with aplomb and considerable bug spray

Ambar Review

Ambar

Eastern Market, Capitol Hill

4.87

At a certain point, you'd be well-advised to stop trying to manage the chaos dish-by-dish and just let the Ambar Experience wash over you.

Shaw's Tavern Review

Shaw's Tavern

Shaw

Florida Avenue's good for a siren every half hour or so, which keeps you on your toes

August 22, 2020

801 Restaurant and Bar Review

801 Restaurant and Bar

Top-tier brunch classics like steak and eggs and crab cake benedicts make this a solid, if unspectacular, locale.

Alta Strada is the first restaurant to ever bring out bug spray for our table.

July 11, 2020

Ottoman Taverna Review

Ottoman Taverna

Mt Vernon

3.90

You won't come across a bad option on this all-you-can-eat menu, largely an exercise in how many different excellent ways one can enjoy beef and lamb.

February 29, 2020

La Boqueria Review

La Boqueria

Penn Quarter, Chinatown

4.43

Don't expect a walk-in, or even a noon table, but the atmosphere and the challenge of an all-you-can-eat menu results in a pleasantly frenetic experience

Poured with flourish, and for well beyond two hours.

January 11, 2020

Duke's Grocery Review

Duke's Grocery

Foggy Bottom

4.28

Classic orange is what you're getting, but at the champagne-to-OJ ratio and speed of service (you're always on your first glass if it's never empty!), you'd be a fool to want any variety.

August 24, 2019

Barrel Review

Barrel

Eastern Market, Capitol Hill

Dupont Circle

2.47

A full-service Italian restaurant, complete with aggressive baskets of free bread

July 27, 2019

Tyber Creek Review

Tyber Creek

Bloomingdale

4.30

The two-hour limit serves more as a warning for personal consumption than a restriction Tyber even pretends to adhere to.

July 13, 2019

The Fainting Goat Review

The Fainting Goat

U Street

3.14

Our mimosa glasses were never empty, which will go a ways toward looking past a rather charm-free attitude.

HalfSmoke Review

HalfSmoke

U Street

2.13

There's no option that won't leave you feeling a little defeated, but what else are you at a sausage restaurant for, anyway?

May 18, 2019

Provision 14 Review

Provision 14

U Street

3.74

$23 may seem like a steep price to pay for bottomless mimosas, but that's before you realize they're served in a French press.

April 20, 2019

Joselito Casa de Comidas Review

Joselito Casa de Comidas

Eastern Market

2.81

Sangria's not only on offer, but served as wine over a giant, fruit-infused ice cube

Vinoteca Review

Vinoteca
