Makers Union Review



Four flavors are on offer, and even delivered in a pre-set, tasting menu order (you may be tempted to make a substitution, but it's not worth the confusion), but they start syrupy and somehow get worse. Normally we'd tell you how far past the time limit drink service extends, but we didn't want to stick around to find out.



The "family-style" deal is a real bargain, if incredibly confusing — $35 gets you three appetizers and three entrees, so two orders more than covered our six-person table (you can run that per person food cost yourself, but hint, it's good). But while there are a few standouts (get the brussels sprouts and the French toast), you'll really just end up with a full table of tortilla chips and waffles.



We're pretty sure our waiter misunderstood Makers' own family-style menu, since stretching one $35 food order across three people surely isn't profitable (and across six, as we should've done given the portion sizes, is even less so). It wasn't a total loss for the restaurant, though, since they basically forgot about our table after our second round of drinks.



Makers is technically "at the Wharf," but facing Maine Avenue rather than the water, so cars are more prominent than boats. Once inside, the "established 2023" message plastered on the menus will come as no surprise, and the neon "Booze, Brunch, Fun" sign is the laziest Instagram wall we've ever seen.

Bindaas Review


Foggy Bottom


A single mimosa option's all that's on offer, but with saffron and some other mystery ingredients it doesn't get tiresome, and just as importantly, it's included with a brunch entree for the low, low price of $32.

Hank's Oyster Bar

Dupont Circle


Classic brunch items are on offer and quite generously portioned, but if you're into beach-adjacent animals, we'd endorse switching over to the main menu

NaRa-Ya Review


The Wharf


It's the Wharf, so you've got the obligatory view of the water from a nice perch, although for all the visual razzle-dazzle they seem to have neglected some more fundamental items, like comfortable chairs.

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