Brazilian/South American - $22 Brunch, $35 Dinner (202)-986-0757
If you can't resist a deliciously cooked steak, this is the place to go! This tropical-themed eatery serves traditional Brazilian cooking and delicious caipirinhas. If you're unsure of what to get for an appetizer, we recommend the Coxinha - a chicken and cheese stuffed croquette!
French-Influenced American - $35 dinner (202)-234-6732
Renowned chef Cedric Maupillier teams up with local star Jordan Lloyd to offer comfort food with a French twist: think duck pate de campagne for your starter, then wood-oven meatballs with fromage blanc for your main course. The latter is just one of the many tempting options emerging nightly from Mintwood's wood grill. Enjoy with a glass of Chateau Le Nerthe for a perfect respite from midwinter.
JAPANESE - $35 Dinner (202)-234-6218
In 1854, Commodore Matthew C. Perry opened Japan to the West under the threat of force. But Perry's Restaurant threatens only to overwhelm your senses. Sample something from their extensive sushi menu, sip a cocktail at their rooftop bar, or-- if you're feeling adventurous-- secure a spot in line Sunday morning for their weekly brunch, which features a drag show.
American - $35 dinner (202)-232-7663
For a relaxed, hearty meal, stroll up 18th Street to Roofers' Union. For dinner, try their beer steamed mussels or smoked St. Louis style ribs. If you're brunching the morning after you've had quite the night, treat yourself to the "hot mess:" peppers and onions, fried chicken, sausage gravy, and a sunny egg. If whether permits, enjoy a beer on the rooftop, which affords terrific views of both the neighborhood and the city beyond!
