Sunday Brunch to Impress

Boston hound visiting DC the weekend of 12/15 and need a brunch spot on Sunday to impress. Price is no object.

Also a Saturday dim sum suggestion would be helpful as well. Thanks!

    Easy- 4 seasons. If not there then Georgia Brown's. 4 seasons, imho, is the best brunch in the entire area.

      Agree. No one compares to the 4 Ss in style and class.

        How much is the Sunday buffet at the 4 Seasons these days? (I haven't been in years but agree that it is one of the very best I've ever had...)

        How about the rooftop Kennedy Center or the Ritz Carlton. I think the former may have more of a local/special feel since you can go to any 4 seasons or Ritz Carlton around the US.

        For saturday dim sum, go to China Garden and get there by 11:15.

          I still don't think there's a better brunch in town than the Tabard Inn, from both a food and atmosphere standpoint.

          I agree with China Garden for dim sum but as many said on another post, make sure you get there early.

            I wouldn't recommend the Kennedy Center brunch, but maybe it's been revamped. I've been twice, last time was about 18 months ago. Looks better than it tastes.
