Judging Restaurants – Marx Cafe

Marx Cafe is located at 3203 Mount Pleasant St, NW. I know folks feel very strongly about this place. I can’t believe it but I still haven’t been yet. Are there any fans out there? Would you recommend brunch or dinner? Or would you not recommend it at all?

Update: Not to get off topic but I suppose this would be a good spot to add the Washington Post’s Paul Schwartzman’s piece on Mount Pleasant’s struggles. A resident is quoted:

“We’re in a downward spiral,” said Terry Lynch, a Mount Pleasant resident for more than 25 years. He motioned toward a ravaged apartment building and a vacant storefront. “This says, ‘Don’t bring your business to Mount Pleasant. Go to another neighborhood.’ “

Just thought I’d add this in case anyone missed it. Personally, I think folks are always overreacting when they mention Mount Pleasant’s demise…
