By: Anna Spiegel

Whether you’re looking to check out a new restaurant, dine al fresco, or get silly over bottomless mimosas, here are seven recently debuted brunches to try this weekend.

Arcuri

2400 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-827-8745

Glover Park’s Italian newcomer just rolled out brunch service with dishes such as lemon pancakes, soft-scrambled eggs with prosciutto and ricotta, and a mozzarella-egg sandwich. Not in the morning mood? You can still get pizza and limoncello slushies. Check out the front patio on nicer days.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 11 to 3

El Centro D.F. Georgetown

1218 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-333-4100

Hungry and thirsty? The Georgetown spinoff of Richard Sandoval’s 14th Street Mexican spot offers an all-you-can-eat-and-drink brunch for $35. Get your fill of egg and chorizo tacos, chilaquiles, shrimp ceviche, and more, washed down with micheladas and agua fresca cocktails. The courtyard patio is open during these final summery days.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 10 to 4

Menu


Et Voila!

5120 MacArthur Blvd., NW; 202-237-2300

Belgian neighborhood spot Et Voila! just revamped its brunch offerings—think savory buckwheat crepes, croques monsieur and madame, and bacon, egg, and Gruy√®re on a toasty muffin. Just $12 gets you bottomless bellinis, or there’s always a lobster Bloody.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 11 to 2:30

Menu


The Grill Room

1050 31st St., NW; 202-617-2400

The Capella Hotel’s dining room just launched a Sausage & Rye brunch. Choose from ten varieties of fresh-made sausage from meat man and colorful orator Jamie Stachowski, who owns the eponymous butcher shop up the street. You’ll also find whiskey cocktails, along with egg dishes for traditionalists.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 10 to 2

Menu


Kapnos

2201 14th St., NW; 202-234-5000

First chef Mike Isabella rolled out a patio at Kapnos, and then plans for an Arlington spinoff. Now he’s on to brunch, which starts this weekend. The many Greek-inspired items include baklava French toast, baked eggs with crispy lamb and feta, and taramasalata-spread bagels and lox. Go bottomless (figuratively) for $18.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 11 to 3

Menu


M Cafe Bar

1634 14th St., NW; 202-290-1178

The newest Italian on 14th Street recently started a bellini brunch. Look for a modern Italian lineup of flatbreads, frittatas, egg dishes, and more. If the weather’s nice, a sidewalk patio is the place to be for people-watching.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday starting at 11


Red Rocks H Street

1348 H St., NE; 202-621-7300

The fourth location for Red Rocks is also the largest, with three levels and a spacious roof deck. Bask in the sun while sipping $15 bottomless mimosas or Bloodys (limited to two hours, which seems safe). Pad your stomach with steak and eggs, brunch pizzas, brandy-spiked French toast, and more.

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 11 to 4 (note that Saturday brunch will not be available during H Street Festival on Saturday, September 20)
