In this mega-dining room’s spacious, subterranean concert hall, a rotating lineup of musical acts, such as Howard University’s gospel choir or Patrick Lundy & the Ministers of Music, belts out joyful tunes. Meanwhile, brunchgoers pile their plates from the all-you-can-eat Southern spread, which—when you factor in the show and a complimentary mimosa or Bloody Mary—is a deal at $30. Go for such down-home options as crumbly buttermilk biscuits, glazed ham, and chicken-and-andouille gumbo, and book the early seating to avoid the crowds. Seatings Sunday at 10 and 12:30.
