two words: Bourbon's burger YUM!
My lips are sealed as to which one I voted for, but I will say that I'm surprised Eventide got the number of votes that they did. Went there on three different occasions and was not really a fan :/
I voted for Birch and Barley for their amazing beer list, wonderful brunch, modern decor, great location, and outdoor seating.
I love Birch & Barley and Eventide, but I voted for Bourbon Steak. I don't even eat steak and the food is consistently amazing. Great seafood, side items and bar menu. And while it's an expensive joint, it isn't pretentious and there is a wide variety of price ranges depending on your budget.
Hands down Bourbon Steak. Service is impeccable, dishes are very creative and fresh, and the cocktails are crafted with mouthwatering perfection. Two Words: Lobster Corndogs!
Bibiana. Good Italian food is rare is DC, so Bibiana is a welcome addition to the DC restaurant scene. The squid ink pasta with crab is incredible and I highly recommend the burrata (a dish I order whenever it is offered on a restaurant menu). Ashok Bajaj deserves the win on this one....
Birch & Barley~
I love INOX, but it's a little too expensive to go there as often as I'd like.
B&B has amazing food and great decor. Who wouldn't love a place that has brunch 'til 8pm, but also a rockin' selection of beers and delicious sticky buns and donuts. The decor is whimsical yet organic. And they gave an awesome garage-style wall that is actually a door that can pull up to open outdoor seating.
Bibiana for the squid ink pasta dish and the infused limoncellos.
Bourbon Steak, for name, concept, and execution.
NOT Eventide....I'm just saying. ;) Brunch at Eventide was ok...but not memorable.
Eventide because they have the most pull with RAMW.
just voted for burbob steak. love the bar menu... and the lobster potpie ofcourse!
Sorry, didn't see the part about saying why I picked BourbonSteak- They're innovative but based on classic flavors, incredibly creative with the menu items, and I love the atmosphere!
Birch & Barley!!!!
Just voted for BourbonSteak!
