Drinks

4.61

The vodka spritzers are a refreshing change of pace, but ultimately you don't go to brunch for drinks from a can, so you'll settle back with mimosas sooner rather than later, and between the orange, cranberry, and peach options, it's a good play for a very reasonable $20.

Food

3.74

Although a few brief mentions of eggs is the only evidence this is a brunch menu, the opportunity to pair mimosas with wontons or crab rangoon is rare enough it's still worth jumping at it, even if you may need to add a few appetizers to ensure you're full.

Service

4.56

Serving the champagne and mixer individually is an excellent way to ensure the ratio we like to see, and Bar Chinois doesn't disappoint, with heavy pours extending past the two-hour mark. Our server also complimented a brunch compatriot on his jumping-jack form, and we aren't above scooting this rating a few notches higher as a thank you.

Ambiance

3.71

The industrial-chic interior is livened up by a DJ, adding some spunk to your Sunday morning, and the floor-to-ceiling windows let the light and, well, a neighboring alley, shine in.

Dirty Habit Review

Dirty Habit

Penn Quarter, Chinatown

1.01

The $45 charge for bottomless drinks alone is a dollar more than the entire Ambar experience (and, notably, $10 more than the price listed on Dirty Habit's website), so things weren't looking good for this score the moment we got the menu.

We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
