Had a yummy brunch on Sunday - those in my party had the chicken and waffles, eggs Benedict, steak panini, salad and French toast. EVERYONE loved their meal. The virgin Bloody Mary was very spicy! Decent service, good prices.

We went to The District, mid August, for a early evening meal, before the summer crowds filled the downtown streets, so a reservation was unnecessary. Their fried pickles are always fun. Crab cakes are good and can opt as a light meal. The grilled ceasar...More
