This was such a charming and delicious French restaurant in Georgetown. I loved the inside table layout, it felt private and intimate. The food was fantastic and the flavors were well thought paired.

We enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch at Brick. From the Host/Hostess seating us, to our Waitress/Servers, everything was superb. Food was delicious too. We will continue to dine at Brick on a regular basis. Never had a bad meal there.
