My friend and I have had some serious cravings for a mean creme brulee. We live in the District and prefer to keep things metro accessable. Any suggestions?

    Mosaic in Rockville has some incredible Crème Brulée Du Jour's

      My favorite creme brulee was at Restaurant Eve in Old Town. It is a bit of a walk from the metro but would be enjoyable on a nice day. I think they serve dessert at the bar so you could always go there for some of Todd's excellent cocktails and dessert.

          Is that the Earl Grey Creme Brulee? I remember trying that somewhere but couldn't remember the restaurant and thought it might be Corduroy.

          Ruth's Chris in Bethesda. Very close to Metro. Consistently great creme brulee. It is a large portion with a hard sugar crunch and lots of berries. I hate brulee that has a thin sugar layer. I like a bite of fruit with each bite and can't stand when restaurants charge $7 or $8 for brulee and only give you 3 raspberries! This comes with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Very good eats!

            At the grille at the Homestead they have a lavender creme brulee that is fantastic, of course on our trip nothing else was, so I will have to find somewhere else with it or learn to make it :)

              Really enjoyed a banana creme brulee at Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan the other night. I think the desserts change daily, but fyi anyway.
