Dacha Beer Garden Begins Brunch at 10am this Weekend, Also Now Opens at Noon on Fridays

7th and Q St, NW

From a press release:

“As summer approaches, so do more opportunities to enjoy the outdoor bar and restaurant Dacha Beer Garden in the Shaw neighborhood.

Owners Ilya Alter and Dmitri Chekaldin, along with General Manager and Chef Michal Matejczuk, are debuting their new brunch menu this weekend, Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, May 31 – opening at 10:00am – an hour earlier than most brunch establishments in DC.

”We hope to offer our customers and neighbors a welcoming brunch experience that they can enjoy with their family and friends,” says Chekaldin. 

”We will be introducing traditional German breakfast fare such as Belgian Waffles, as well as showcasing house favorites such as our house-smoked salmon,” explains Matejczuk.

Each of the prix fixe meals is priced at $32 plus tax. Guests also have an option to upgrade their meals to include bottomless mimosas, which will be served for the first time at Dacha, for $10 plus tax.

Born in Poland and raised in Chicago, Matejczuk is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. Since joining Dacha in January, he has successfully expanded Dacha’s menu to include house favorites such as schnitzel, potato pancakes, and happy hour sliders that change daily.

Dacha will also be opening at noon on Fridays beginning May 29. “We know many Washingtonians take Fridays off during the summer or even work from home;” says Alter, “with our free Wi-Fi and lunch offerings, we invite everyone to enjoy DC’s summer weather in the garden and in the shade of our canopy with a boot of Weihenstephan Pilsner… or any of our 20 beers, meads and ciders on tap.”

In its second full season, Dacha Beer Garden has expanded into the neighboring building that used to be home to a Chinese take-out, upgraded the kitchen, and installed brand new bathrooms for guests.

Other events Dacha has added this season include an industry day, game night and happy hour bookings for fundraisers and community gatherings:

• Industry Day, starting June 1, offers a discount to the hard working industry community as well as gives them an opportunity to have a brunch of their own every Monday from noon to 4 pm.
• Game night is Tuesday – Challenge your friends or a stranger to chess, checkers, dominoes or backgammon provided by Dacha.”
