Those of you waiting to hold court in some of the best seats around Dupont Circle will be excited about this long-awaited news.
The Dupont Circle Hotel has held off on the highly anticipated reopening of its Pembroke Restaurant (1500 New Hampshire Avenue, NW) over the last year, but the hotel’s General Manager announced that this weekend is the weekend! Brunch service is officially reopening and continuing exclusively on weekends from 9 am to 2:30 pm.
The Doyle, the adjacent award-winning bar with its own expansive terrace, is currently open serving cocktails and food from 2 pm to 11 pm daily with a signature menu of small bites and entrees. But the Pembroke has a feel and a menu all its own — including a brilliant brunch!
There will be dining indoors in the delightfully light-filled restaurant with plush velvet coral-toned banquettes — or diners can choose service al fresco on the terrace to watch goings-on in and around the Circle as they enjoy innovative breakfast-inspired classics as well as tried-and-true favorites like House-made Pancakes, with mixed berries, whipped mascarpone, and powdered sugar, with the option to add bacon or sausage; Egg White Frittata of goat cheese, spinach, tomato and choice of toast; and Corned Beef Hash with roasted potatoes, bell peppers, and poached egg.
We’re also loving Pembroke’s new Build Your Own Mimosas offering with Taittinger La Francaise Brut Champagne and Bloody Mary for the Table featuring Ketel One vodka. Because what’s brunch without bubbles or bloodies to make it a little bit extra?!
Pembroke reopens for brunch service beginning Saturday, May 15th. Reservations for brunch are necessary.
