For a brunch spot, the mimosas were disappointing, but the cocktail options are aplenty and delicious, with a bourbon selection providing a rare opportunity to minimize the sugar. Be prepared to photograph them all (points for presentation), and with enough of them, you'll be left cheers-ing like Leonardo DiCaprio in, well, Gatsby.
The portions are hefty, so come hungry, but don't sleep on the sides. From brisket poutine to mini pancakes, you're not short on options to customize or spruce up your choices, unless the indecision becomes too much.
Our waitress wasn't afraid to (deservedly) mock our drinking pace when she was eager to bring over more cocktail options, and the spectacle of carrying the drinks up in an elevator brought the presentation to the next level (er, story?).
It's a Choose Your Own Adventure, with the vibe shifting quite literally depending on your seat. In one direction, you've got the full Great Gatsby experience, from charming period piece portraits to rustic literary views; in another you'll get a classier Denny's; and in one more you have good ol' Nats Park. Unfortunately you'll also enter another dimension, or at least a black hole, when you use the restroom, so bring a flashlight and plot your route.
The classics are on offer, but it's the PBR and brewdrivers that really sets the tone, and at $26 for the bottomless option and an entree, sometimes it pays to brunch at a dive bar.
There's a wide selection (including an actually-good-brunch-margarita!), but we quickly gravitated toward Mi Casa's house punch, which was only enhanced by the goblet-sized contraption in which they arrived.
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
