Coziest Brunches In D.C. This Winter

Keep the cold out because hygge is in season. We find that feeling of cozy contentment over a communal table of warm plates shared with friends. And while we love a steaming bowl of ramen or a hearty stew as much as the next person, but some weekends you want to go out for brunch so you can stay in, snuggled on the couch all night. Here are some of our top picks for the coziest brunch spots in town.

Stable

You don’t have to hit the slopes to get in on the après ski action. H Street’s Stable is styled after a Swiss ski chalet. Bring a group to grill your own bites over raclette brunch and spiked hot cocoa. If you are looking for a potato-and-cheese dish made for you, we’d suggest the Berner Rosti.

Verdict: 5 Champagne flutes. Read the Bitches’ brunch review, here.

Stable

Stable serves brunch Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 a.m. 1324 H St. N.E., Washington, D.C. (202) 733-4604

Convivial

The name of the restaurant means, in fact, lively and enjoyable. The menu at Convivial is hearty French-American comfort food — it’s the exact sort of thing you’d want to eat on a cold, snowy day — the perfect precursor to a movie or a nap. The massive cinnamon roll and the waffle and fried chicken are our picks for filling up. Add an Irish coffee and you’re well on your way.

Tiger Fork

Hong Kong sure knows how to bring the heat. If you’d rather warm up over a hot bowl of congee, Tiger Fork is your spot. The Congee Cart is wheeled out tableside so diners can choose their own toppings to add to this hearty rice porridge. Plus, the blooming jasmine tea service is a delight to watch and then sip on.

The Sovereign

The den downstairs at the Sovereign is a respite both from the cold and the busy streets of Georgetown. Warm up over one of the many beers on draught at the bar, or opt for a hot cider spiked with bourbon. Be sure to dig into the Belgian menu of waffles, burgers, and more hearty goodness.

The verdict: 4 Champagne flutes. Read the Bitches’ brunch review, here.

Iron Gate

Iron Gate is one of our favorite spots for brunch dates anytime of year, but the winter is especially romantic. Cozy up by the fireplace inside or enjoy the fire pit on the patio, surrounded by heat lamps. Couples can split some the delicious mezze plates from the hearth, or order the ricotta pancakes for a classic meal.
