Sunday Brunch with Soul
One of the best things about Washington, D.C. are the endless number of restaurants to try. However, not many are known for their brunch. Most DCers tend to gravitate towards the brunch spots that are places to see and be seen and very rarely seek out new establishments.
This past week, my girlfriend and I were looking to get together with our significant others for brunch. She suggested Georgia Brown’s. Since I had never been there before, I jumped at it.
Georgia Brown’s is VERY southern cuisine – after all, the chef is from South Carolina. Their brunch on Sundays is a three “act” meal with a live jazz band. When I say three acts, I’m not joking. For $40 a person, you get a full breakfast buffet, offering you every type of southern breakfast food you’d expect – biscuits and gravy, grits, fried french toast with pecan/caramel topping, a carving station, an omelet station, a ton of sweet breads and even a chocolate fountain (just to name a few). This is followed by Act II – another full-course meal (aka lunch). For those that have never been there – ask for the second act “to go”, which they are accustomed to. There are seven different full course meals to choose from. (My boyfriend and I brought home gumbo shrimp and fried chicken with whole spinach and mashed potatoes.) As for the finale, Act III is sweetbreads (if you can make it that far).
In addition to all the amazing food, there is a live jazz act, making it feel like a full after-church brunching experience. I definitely recommend making reservations there!
