This week we celebrated National Hot Dog Day, and very few things could be better than continuing the party into the weekend with some meaty brunch options. BECAUSE:

meat is neat

I apologize to my vegetarian friends and hereby offer our DC Brunch Guide 2014 with an array of options lacking meat, wheat, or whatever else you really don’t want to put in your body. On to our meaty brunches for this weekend:


“Treat yourself to a slew of alternative new brunch tapas like sautéed rice served with tomato, fried egg and Ibérico pork belly as well as pancakes made with Spanish extra virgin olive oil. You can even taste your way through organic fried eggs and fried potatoes with sea urchin add-on, and fried baby shrimp with an organic free range fried egg. This should be a no-brainer.” Check out our full review here.



We go for the Grilled Lamb Chops. A BYT contributor raves:

“One of my favorite memories ever, was waking up somewhat early on New Year’s Day this year, grabbing a group of my favorite dude friends and heading to the all you can eat brunch buffet at the Four Seasons.  Don’t get me wrong, this is not your average buffet — with everything from Dry Rub Quail with BBQ Jus, to Charcoal-Grilled Lamb Chops with Mint Chimichuri this is definitely a ‘TREAT YO’SELF’ kind of meal. The best part? A jovial omelet chef who’ll make your eggs any way you want ‘em and the never ending exceptional service (especially when it comes to refilling your Mimosa glass).”


Hank’s is one of Svetlana’s favorite brunch picks, she says, “my favorite sandwich of all time is a reuben. My favorite breakfast meat of all time is a smoked salmon. Hank’s features a smoked salmon reuben on their brunch menu. The end.”



“Mike Isabella’s 14th street church of Greek food now serves brunch. On the menu: lots of classic small plates, but also: pork & beans with soft egg and loukaniko sausage, greek coffee waffles with chocolate espresso beans and baklava french toast.”



A full meat and cheese menu, need I say more? Yes? Alright:

“As if being super packed all night wasn’t enough for the 14th street wine bar, their brunch menu looks pretty stellar too: from Barcelona Benedicts with your choice of Serrano or Morcilla ham to Braised Oxtail Hash and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes (with lavander ricotta, natch) – there is plenty to look forward to.”
