National Eggs Benedict Day – D.C. Guide

Bitches Brunch Guide
Save to Foursquare

Is there a more quintessential brunch dish than Eggs Benedict? While we certainly love the age-old Canadian bacon and poached egg combination, Washington’s eateries have several other creative and delicious options from which to choose. As warm weather continues to creep in, we expect brunch goers to turn out in droves to restaurants throughout the District. To make the selection process a little easier, we’ve collected a number of benny options to help narrow down your choices. Happy Eggs Benedict Day!

Bayou

Not explicitly on the menu, Bayou’s fried green tomato Eggs Benedict is derived directly from the fried green tomato appetizer. Paired with an English muffin, topped with Hollandaise, and served with home fries, this option is Southern, creative, and fun. Bayou serves brunch Saturday and Sunday.

Brasserie Beck

While it may be known for offering delicious Belgian-inspired fare, Brasserie Beck serves quite an impressive Eggs Benedict. Putting yet another creative spin on the dish, Brasserie Beck’s benny is a wonderful combination of Serrano ham, poached eggs, Hollandaise, and for a little something extra: goat cheese. Brasserie Beck serves brunch on Sundays.

Boxcar Tavern

Nestled in the charming Eastern Market neighborhood, Boxcar Tavern offers a new spin on the Eggs Benny that is appetizing and delicious. Served on two thick slices of brioche, with thinly sliced prosciutto, and sautéed baby spinach, this dish is definitely worth the stop while spending a Sunday afternoon perusing great finds at the market. Daikaya serves brunch Saturday and Sunday.

Commissary

They say variety is the spice of life and never has that been truer than with Commissary’s Eggs Benedict offerings, which include a chorizo benny with poblano Hollandaise. Becca sampled the short rib Eggs Benedict. Served on two pieces of cornbread, the short ribs were juicy and smothered in BBQ Hollandaise. Absolute heaven. Commissary serves brunch every day until 4 p.m.

Creme

The south may be the best thing to have happened to the Eggs Benedict. Becca dined on the Louisiana Benedict served with shrimp, Andouille sausage, veggies, and best of all, Tabasco Hollandaise. Seriously? Who makes Tabasco hollandaise? It makes this Benny one of the most memorable in DC. Crème is reopening its new 14th Street location in Summer 2014.

Daikaya

You certainly wouldn’t place a Japanese-inspired restaurant at the top of your list of places for an amazing Eggs Benedict. However, Shashimi’s poached egg and Chesapeake korroke (essentially a Japanese Benedict) is a great spin on the traditional dish. Daikaya serves brunch on Sundays.

Vinoteca

While downing mimosas and basking in the warmth on the amazing patio, order Vinoteca’s Eggs Benedict topped with duck confit. Gone is the traditional English muffin. Instead, rustic bread is topped with Hollandaise and thinly sliced confit. Light yet filling, you may muster up enough energy to take your party (and mimosas) to Vinoteca’s back patio for more fun and games. Vinoteca serves brunch Saturdays and Sundays.

  1. Did Brassie Beck change its Benedict offering? The brunch menu lists a “Crab Cakes Benedict” but no one like mentioned above. =/
