Best French Toast in DC

I am dying for some tasty French toast. Anyone have any restaurant suggestions for French toast in the DC-metro area?

  1. I really like Bistro Bis' french toast, but I don't eat french toast all that often.

      I could have written the exact same thing. Although it is not part of my usual food pyramid, the French Toast as Bistro Bis is out-of-this-world good.

    2. I can't say I've had either but it looks good at Poste and sounds good (from the description) at Matchbox's new brunch. Looking forward to trying both very soon!

      1. Thanks! I will check these out! YUM

        1. Also anyone see menus with challah french toast on it? This is my favorite type of french toast and if I'm going to order french toast (which happens rarely since I try to be "good" at brunch) this is the type I would like to order.

          Btw I was at brunch at Dupont Grille on Sunday and they had a great looking french toast made out of cinnemon raisin bread. Mmmmmmmm

          1. If you're willing to venture out of the city...just a short hop over to Clarendon...Boulevard Woodgrill on Wilson has really good french toast (brioche bread with Grand Marnier whipped cream). Artie's in Fairfax (one of the Great American Restaurants) also has a brioche french toast in granola crumbs. I think most of the Great American Restaurants have a french toast on their brunch menus as well. Yum!

            1. My ex, who was a French toast fanatic, loved the version that Metro 29 on Lee Highway in Arlington does. I believe it's challah, IIRC.

              1. My favorites for french toast are the New Orleans Cafe in Adams Morgan and at the Tabard Inn near Dupont.

                1. Teaism! You can get a single (ample) or double (carb-o-rama!) order, always topped with seasonal fruit. This time of year i think it's apple sauce. I believe that this might only be available on the weekends, but don't hold me to it.

                    I never realized that Teaism had such good food - I have seen a lot of different recommendations for that restaurant. It is close to my house, so I really need to try it!

                  2. I just checked out the menu for Hudson's brunch/breakfast and it looks like they offer french toast, including challah (!!!!) french toast. I can't wait to give it a try either this weekend or next.

                      At the Paper Moon near Hampden in Baltimore, I'm pretty sure they have challah french toast as well.
