    Highly recommended if you happen to be in DC. We had to wait a bit after our initial reservation time, but they even offered complimentary mimosas at the bar while we waited for our table. Just above and beyond all around. The food was DELICIOUS and the vibes were great.

    It's always a good time at Georgia Brown. I went for Sunday Jazz brunch and it was top tier. There was a bit of wait because people did not want leave their tables. We sat at the bar and enjoyed biscuits and Mimosas. Everything was delicious. The service was impeccable. The music was amazing. One warning: There is a homeless tent city in McPherson Square park that popped up over the pandemic. It's not a great sight, so I would not recommend sitting outdoors.

    arrived for a 10am reservation and did not get service from our waiter Jude, for 40min; had to ask another server about where our table staff was; thankfully Brandy brought us our drinks and continued to provide back up service. I enjoyed the food and the small plate offerings, I just wished our service was more consistent.

    A good spot for brunch with reasonable prices and great service. We just wish that the bottomless deal allowed guests to switch between drinks instead of making you stick with one.

Discover District of Columbia

The District of Columbia is a place where eating out can be an adventure. Caribbean, Italian, and Pakistani cuisine can be found in the area. You can also dine on classic American fare, seafood, and barbecue. Try the Jamaican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin or the steak churrasco for a taste of the Caribbean. If you plan to eat Italian cuisine, sample the gamberi, cannelloni, or the pollo parmigiano. The District of Columbia’s Pakistani fare is traditional with dishes like Punjabi boti chicken tikka, goat dum biryani, or the butter chicken. For breakfast, you might like steel cut oats, organic cottage cheese and fresh fruit, or French toast and beef hash. This is a destination where the food is almost as good as the sights.
