Taste Test: Equinox Brunch
priyakonings | Aug 11, 2017 | 1:00PM |

Equinox is one of D.C.’s oldest and most sophisticated restaurants. Power couples go there for dinner, business partners meet for lunch, and normal people like you and me take our parents there when they are visiting from out of town because we can’t afford to eat there unless are parents are paying for it. Good news. You can now afford to dine at Equinox without your parents. At brunch, you can enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet for a mere $35 per person. Let the fine dining begin!

Sadly, the buffet does not include beverages, which are a la carte, but it is chock full of some seriously good food. The menu changes all the time, but it always includes a tofu scramble station, a huge bread display with spreads, a dessert table and an array of soups, salads, pasta, pancakes, and more.

I went by recently and indulged in pizza, crispy fried tempura cauliflower that is doused in a sweet and sour sauce, garlicky, creamy tomato gazpacho, falafel drizzled in a tahini dressing, savory pancakes stuffed with roasted vegetables, a perfect peach panzanella, and stuffed French toast. And those were just the savory items.

For dessert, I inhaled mini cannolis, tiny cupcakes, baby cheesecakes, and little tarts. They tasted even better than they looked. I ate about 100 of them. Clearly, for $35 you can get your money’s worth. Forget your parents, you are can now eat at Equinox any damn time you want. Or, any Sunday for brunch. Go there this weekend and pretend to be a grown up. It’s fun. And delicious.
