Il Piatto Review



Il Piatto offers more mimosa flavors than you could imagine, but imaginations can run a little too wild (here's looking at you, kiwi). We quickly figured out that the fresh-squeezed mango was by far the best mix, but be warned that your own glass will soon look like a pulp graveyard and quite literally taste like the rainbow. But with the $35 including a three-course meal, too... we'll take it.



Speaking of its $35 three-course (and mimosa) meal, Il Piatto's cuisine will leave your mouth watering throughout. True to Italian restaurant form, the portion size is reasonable so you'll be just full enough after the whole delectable spread.



The restaurant is packed, so don't expect to be seated early or linger too late, but the staff is pleasant and efficient throughout. Heads up on the 20 percent service charge (in addition to tip), but better server wages will never be a dealbreaker.



It's hard to beat the prime location of BLM Plaza with a sweeping, secluded, shaded patio and upscale interior. A note of caution that the bathroom line consistently wrapped around the fine establishment, which shifted the ambiance from elegant to 2 a.m.-bar-scene, but we love to see a crowded and appreciated brunch locale.

Classic brunch items are on offer and quite generously portioned, but if you're into beach-adjacent animals, we'd endorse switching over to the main menu

The Wharf


It's the Wharf, so you've got the obligatory view of the water from a nice perch, although for all the visual razzle-dazzle they seem to have neglected some more fundamental items, like comfortable chairs.

Le Mont Royal Review

Adams Morgan


The $96 caviar and lox platter takes the cake as the most expensive brunch entree we’ve seen by a solid sixty bucks or so, but the rest of the menu is reasonably priced in the high teens

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