Find Brunch Right Now

This Week D.C.: Feb 19-25

We hope you’re getting your beauty rest on Monday off so you can enjoy the high energy of the District. The dining, entertainment, and tips we have in store can hopefully help you conquer these last few weeks of the coldest winter month.

For starters, we’ll let you in on an event this weekend we are extremely excited about: The WINNter Affair for the Children’s Inn on Saturday, Feb.24. The Children’s Inn at NIH is a residential “Place Like Home’’ for families with children participating in leading-edge research studies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, and they’re hosting a gala you simply won’t want to miss. Food, drinks, and lending a helping hand; you can bet we’ll be there! Find the fast-selling tickets, here. 

On Monday, February 19th at 6:30 p.m. Primrose Wine Bar’s Sebastian Zutant will host a private dinner alongside winemaker Ben Jordan, introducing their wine, Lightwell Survey. Sebastian and Ben will lead guests on an exploration of four styles of the small-batch natural wines, made locally in Virginia at Early Mountain Vineyards. Guests will enjoy dish pairings from Primrose’s executive chef, Nathan Beauchamp. Tickets are available for $100 plus tax by emailing


Calling all of our Bethesda Bitches! City Perch is known for its fabulous happy hour, so just because the long weekend is over, doesn’t mean the fun has to be. They also have an awesome events page, so you can become as big of fans of City Perch as we are. Oh, and their brunch is pretty on point, too. Find out what we had, here.

This Wednesday is yet another religious holiday for the Bitches. National Pancake Day has arrived and it’s time we take a moment to thank all the fine District establishments that bring us the fluffy pancakes we all know and love. Lavagna and Tupelo Honey are some of favorite pancakes of 2017.


Just above Pearl Dive on 14th street is Black Jack. What better place than your neighborhood bar to jump in on D.C.’s dynamic craft cocktail movement?  Black Jack’s skilled mixologists incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients from the kitchen into your next drink while you take in the scene in our lounge or front row bar seats. Black Jack will not leave you thirsty this Thursday!

If you’re starting your long weekend off with a bit of culture through D.C.’s fabulous museum scene, you should know that the Pavilion Café in the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden has just launched a special, limited-time, evening menu for the Sculpture Garden’s extended weekday hours, which last until March 11th. The Pavilion Café will offer shareable appetizers such as chicken satay with sunflower butter sauce, soft pretzels with cheddar and ale dip, warm spinach and artichoke dip, and more. Enjoy $5 drink specials including wine, sparkling rosé, and craft or draft beer.

Some of you are just that good at hitting the D.C. brunch scene. We’re here to keep you on your toes and tell you there are some amazing brunch options out in Virginia. SER in Arlington is a great spot for authentic Spanish-American fare. See what we thought, here.

The highly-anticipated ramen event will take place on Sunday, February 25th, 2018 at Mess Hall Ramen. Two time slots will be offered for the event, with the first round beginning at Noon and ending at 2:00 p.m. There will be a break for chefs to reset and restock, before resuming round 2, which will begin promptly at 3:00 p.m. and will end at 5:00 p.m. Tickets include unlimited food, Kirin Ichiban, and craft cocktails prepared by popular D.C. bartenders. Event goers will also bring home bottles of Tamari Soy Sauce.

While the Bitches Who Brunch write this post independently, compensation is received from partnerships with Black Jack, City Perch, Lavagna, and The Children’s Inn.

Dannah is our toughest critic. With a food and drink background, this Bitch brings her sophisticated opinion to the D.C. dining scene. Dannah is our D.C. editor and has all the restaurant intel. She's always game to try something new, but when it comes to brunch, she's looking for the classics done in an exceptional manner. French toast over pancakes, and bloodys over mimosas, always.
