Best Eggs Benedict?

After an amazing meal at Brennan's in New Orleans, my husband has been craving eggs benedict.
Where should I take him for the best in DC? Traditional or not...doesn't matter.
My favorite is the Market Lunch at Eastern market on Saturdays - Very Diner-like, but delicious - on one of their rolls instead of a muffin.

I am a new fan of Againn. It is a wonderful gastropub in DC. They make everything from scratch including their english muffins, bacon, hash (they buy a whole pig a week for this stuff). They did have a haggis benedict, but I don't think it was selling well as it has not been on the menu the last couple times I was there, but they have more traditional bene's instead.
Id put my vote in for the Benedict Saturday (not Sunday) Mornings at/in Eastern Market. -not a traditional benedict (and trust me I love a great traditional benedict) but SO good. Its a poached egg, a glorious thick slice of fried green tomatoe, (bacon? -I dont remeber) and plenty o hollandaise. All on a perfect bigger than normal english muffin. -get this with grits, I swear this was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had.
-The benedict at Brassarie Beck is also very, very good. (as well as the rest of thier breakfast stuff)
My wife and I had the room service eggs benedict at the Latham Hotel in Georgetown and it was tremendous. Perfectly poached eggs, prosciutto di Parma and Hollandaise on freshly made, toasted Brioche. It was easily the richest version I have ever had but it was unforgettable.
