Sunday Brunch in DC

fein Dec 17, 2010 02:42 PM

Looking for a fun place for Sunday Brunch to celebrate the boyfriend's birthday. Would like something with a beverage option if possible. Looking for something fun but yummy as well. Live music is a plus but not required. We are in our late 20's and just moved here from NYC. I read something about Twist having a good brunch. I want to be in DC. We live in VA and will be in the city all day. Thoughts??

    Sunday drag brunch at Perry's in Adams Morgan?

      Perry's is a good idea but not for anyone who is shy. They may literally rip your boyfriend's shirt off, so be aware. It is very fun, though, and the food is generally good.

      obvious choice would be the latin dim sum brunch every sunday at Cafe Atlantico. There has been numerous discussions regarding this on this web page

      Cafe Atlantico
      405 8th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004

        Not extremely fun but delicious, cozy and kinda of romantic is Tabard Inn. Great place to celebrate and one of the best brunches in DC.

          Agree on Tabard but hard to get a reservation and parking is a nightmare so plan to take Metro - get the donuts!

              Georgia Brown's has a great Sunday Jazz Brunch. Nice, live music with wide buffett selections. TV by the Bar.

                The Georgia Brown's Sunday brunch is delicious with a ridiculous amount of food (large buffet and then you get a choice of entree which I think everyone ends up taking home). But when I went I found it to be really, really loud. It's a jam packed room and then on top of that there is music (which isn't really necessary). My boyfriend and I were practically shouting at each other in order to just carry on a conversation.
