Halloween Brunch

burkemic99 Oct 26, 2009 06:52 PM

Anyone know of a restaurant doing special brunch for Halloween? As an alternative, who does a good Saturday brunch (Mrs. K's, Kennedy Center, etc. seem to be Sunday only). Ideally I'm looking for the $20-$30 range.

    I haven't heard of any special Halloween brunches, but for Saturday brunch, I recommend the Tabard Inn and Belga Café.

      Coco Sala has Halloween festivities. Not sure if that includes brunch, though....

      Where's the drag brunch? That might be the most fun at Halloween.

        Is the drag brunch at Perry's?

          Perry's website only lists the Sunday drag brunch. I did send in a question to tomorrow's Tom Sietsema (sp?) WaPo discussion, so maybe he has some additonal ideas. I'll have to check out the Tabard and Belga websites.

            Sigh. As typical. Tom never got to my question.

              There probably aren't a lot of Halloween-themed brunches, at least in DC--perhaps in the suburbs. But I'm sure there are Halloween dinners and events later in the day. For example, the Mansion at O is having both a special dinner, a costume party and some sort of martini party. It's the perfect venue for Halloween festivities--spooky! Go to the website and click on the Halloween icon at the bottom of the page for more info: www.omansion.com

              And for just a good Saturday brunch, like I said before, Tabard Inn and Belga Café are good options. I also like Blue Duck Tavern's brunch, but taking into account alcohol and depending on what you order, it might be above your price point.

              EDIT: Just came across this list of restaurant special Halloween events:


              Poste's special cocktail and tasting menu looks especially interesting although I should mention that I haven't had good service there.

              Tabard Inn
              1739 N St NW, Washington, DC 20036

              Blue Duck Tavern
              1201 24th Street NW, Washington, DC 20037

            Filomena in Georgetown always decorates their restaurant for Halloween. It's fun and over the top. I believe they do a brunch buffet but I've personally only ever been for dinner.
