The 5 Best Brunch Spots in Washington Corridor

Photo by Troy Fields
At our No. 3 spot, you can get anything from a light cobb salad to decadent nut-crusted chicken and monkey bread.
3. Benjy's on Washington Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This chic, open and airy resto may be less "clubby" than its Rice Village counter part, but the party's still popping every weekend during brunch. Come with friends and start with bright balsamic Brussels sprouts and housemade biscuits and gravy, then dig into nut-crusted challah French toast, shrimp and cheddar grits, or even a bright mahi mahi salad. Tack on some bottomless fresh squeezed mintade or, if you're feeling boozy, a champagne mojito.

Start with a bright melon and feta salad at our No. 2 pick.
2. Beaver's Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

You can't not love a place where you can get a bacon-and-sugar-salt-rimmed bloody Mary complete with house-infused bacon vodka and a candied-bacon adornment. The fact that the laidback, kitschy icehouse also serves killer food -- including house-cured duck pastrami, freshly fried beignets, cornmeal-crusted oyster nachos and a breakfast plate that's actually called the "Walk of Shame" -- only makes things that much better.

It's a shame that a good brunch for two people can't be had for under $50. Oh you know of a place? Reply and let me know!

Screw brunch and go to taqueria Laredo.. MMMM...


El Tiempo does a solid brunch.


@erichenao if you'r not drinking a lot, pretty much anywhere, but if you are both macondo latin bistro and kraftsman cafe and let you bring your own champs which could help to keep the cost down, they'll give you a carafe of juice and glasses. It's a $4 corking fee at Macondo. $9 including juice + $1/glass at kraftsmen. Both are awesome and not too far from Washington if you were looking in the area. 

A lot of places also have $1 mimosas, Local Pour, Gloria's, Blackfinn, $2 at Lowbrow, $2 at J. Blacks.
