We’ve already established that wine time doesn’t have to happen out in the country, so if your brunch bunch is looking to dine and drink in style, we know a place where you can grab some good eats while tasting all the fancy flights. Go pop a cork with your buttermilk pancakes right in DC’s Ivy City!
Now that the weather has transitioned, City Winery has moved its weekend brunch to its cozy exposed-brick barrel room, which happens to be ideal for group gatherings, and — with its view of the winery’s aging oak barrels — puts diners in the mood for delicious drinks and comfort food.
City Winery’s menu features so many of the usual brunch dishes, with something for everyone. The Pork Belly Hash, French Toast, and open-faced Steak & Egg Sandwich are standouts. Plus, there’s Avocado Toast for those looking to be trendy, and omelettes for safety.
Not sure how your meal pairs with wine? (Here’s a secret… it doesn’t have to, there are plenty of offerings on the menu, including a Create Your Own Mimosa.) Regardless of your order, your server will be able to make a recommendation, likely of a wine made in-house!
Pro Tip: Make reservations on Sunday when you can take advantage of DJ Jealousy dropping beats while you enjoy those bites and beverages!
