Chef Geoff’s: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012 (CLOSED)

Jazz bands entertain Sunday brunchers at the New Mexico Avenue location of this small local chain, which serves supersized portions of dishes such as eggs Chesapeake—fluffy buttermilk biscuits, lump crabcakes, and ham hash—and Creole-spiced fried chicken with waffles and sweet apple compote. Don’t miss pillowy beignets with chocolate, strawberry, and lemon dipping sauces or the strawberry-basil limonata mocktail—a well-balanced mixture of muddled basil, lemon juice, strawberry purée, balsamic syrup, and soda. Sunday 10:30 to 3.
