Delicious Brunch in Washington, DC When you enter the former General Post Office's former mail sorting room, you're transported away from the madness of Penn Quarter and into a lovely intimate space. The first thing that caught my eye was the Bloody Mary bar which welcomes you upon arrival. I was given a glass with bacon infused vodka and was free to add all kinds of goodies to it: pickled carrots, old bay, pickled jalapenos, and my favorite bacon. The bar has every possible variety of hot sauces and plenty of pickled peppers to satisfy those with a spicy palate. We began our brunch by sharing the duck fat doughnuts. It was delicious but very rich, thankfully we shared! I enjoyed a delicious dish of stewed tomatoes, eggs, and merguez (lamb) sausage made in-house. We traded stories and shared truffle fries in a tucked away cove of the restaurant. The intimate space is refreshing compared to some of the delicious yet noisy restaurants of DC.
