The self-service negates our usual commentary on champagne levels -- this freedom's appreciated, moments of embarrassment for poor pourers aside. The flavor choices are among the best you'll encounter; take the week off from orange and enjoy blackberry, strawberry, or whatever special syrup's on offer.



There's a nice variety of brunch staples and all-day entree options; the fried chicken biscuit's to die for, dangerously close to literally.



The two-hour limit's apparently negotiable if you ask nicely, and they were extremely chill about our group's early-arrivers occupying a table for half an hour without ordering anything while waiting for our full party.



If you can nab an outdoor table, Pennsylvania Avenue's a bustling backdrop, but even the inside offers a snug feel befitting the whiskey-inspired name.

It's a good thing the $30 bottomless deal comes with the freedom to pour your own champagne and multiple flavors, because we're 99 percent sure the "orange juice" was SunnyD.

PLANTA Queen Review


West End


We are perhaps not quite the target audience for a vegan restaurant, but after shelling out close to $25 for some entrees, we couldn't help but feel they were missing a certain something

Casta's Rum Bar Review

Casta's Rum Bar

West End, Foggy Bottom


Disappointingly, the bottomless deal only covers mimosas ($25 for a make-your-own situation), so mojitos are off the table at this Cuban restaurant unless you spend $80 on a cocktail tower that purportedly serves 8.

We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
