  1. a chain resrtaurant that has a big selection of eggs benedicts made well that will not cost you an arm and a leg is Eggspectations with branches in Columbia and Silver Spring if not elsewhere.

    1. re: dining with doc

      eggspectationis also in Chantillly. great variety of benedicts, but my #1 benedict from a chain goes to Mimi's Cafe in Dulles Town Center. thick smoky ham, a crusty bread beneath that is NOT an english muffin. the hollandaise sauce is light and oh so flavorful. not to mention to home fries on the side, fresh squeezed juice and some of the BEST Bloody Marys in Dulles!

    2. I posted this in your other thread, but Harry's Tap Room in Clarendon has excellent eggs benedict, I even like their Chesapeake benedict (although I wouldn't probably eat just their crabcakes).

        I also like the egss benedict at Harry's...actually I usually get the florentine or chesapeake, but they are all excellent!

      2. I like the ones at Original Pancake House in Falls Church.

        1. I like the Benedicts at Luna Grill (both Shirlington and Dupont), Clydes/Old Ebbitt, and Creme.
          Note: I prefer the non-traditional benedicts, like Eggs Chesapeake (over crabcakes), Eggs Florentine (over spinach), and Eggs Norwegienne (over nova).

          1. Had a great eggs benedict at Poste on a recent visit. If you make it up to Baltimore be sure to swing by Mama's on the Half Shell in Canton for their lobster benny! Not to mention their bloody marys are fantastic! Eggs benedict is my go-to treat when out to brunch, always hits the spot. Possible to open up the post to include Baltimore?
