Mintwood Place: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

This Adams Morgan restaurant made one of the most striking debuts of the year, riding the brilliance of chef Cedric Maupillier, who brought Gallic rigor and a spunky imagination to owner Saied Azali’s hipster-farmhouse concept. Maupillier’s brunch lineup is less experimental, but his clean execution is still evident, whether he’s turning out a bountiful smoked-fish platter or an Alsatian flammekueche (a bacon-and-onion-strewn flatbread) or a fluffy Belgian waffle. The chef’s biggest reach—a croissant larded with ham, eggs, bacon, cheese, roast pork, and pickled onions—feels like a dare to make it to dinner without a nap. Saturday and Sunday 10:30 to 2:30.
