14th and T Street, NW

From a press release:

“Cafe Saint-Ex is starting 2018 with a fresh slate. The 14th Street restaurant and bar, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, recently underwent a facelift in the main dining room with bigger changes behind the pass, naming Joel Hatton its new executive chef.

“We’ve been long-time fans of Chef Hatton and his Southern-style comfort food,” says co-owner Jonathan Fain. “14th Street has changed a lot since we started, and we’re excited to grow and change with the neighborhood to continue to be a destination people seek out to have a fun night out with delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere.”

Chef Hatton joined the Saint-Ex team just before the new year having most recently headed up the kitchen at the recently shuttered 1905 Restaurant & Bar. Prior to that, he was the opening chef at Shaw’s Tavern and the long-time executive chef at Leopold’s Kafe in Georgetown. A native of North Carolina, his menus have a definite Southern flair with all the flavors of home. (more…)

Thanks to Steven for sending: “Have you seen this … interesting … article about DC brunches?”

I’m gonna be honest I was so bored until Steven sent What the D.C. Brunch Says About Young Urban Elite from The American Conservative:

“But brunch in D.C. has evolved to be little more than a way for the young urban elite (today’s yuppies) to make their messy weekends look neat, drunkenness hip, and materialistic desires something other than hedonistic. It is a peculiarly coarse, even uncivilized ritual, cloaked in the respectability of Sunday morning.

Brunch has replaced Sunday worship. The bottomless mimosa is the blood of Christ.”

Ed. Note: Oh never mind.

922 N Street, NW – Rear in Blagden Alley

The Hong Kong inspired kitchen will launch brunch this Saturday, September 9th. Much like their dinner menu, Tiger Fork’s brunch will feature “Dim Sum and then Some,” with shareable small-plates designed for the ultimate communal dining experience. Executive Chef Irvin Van Oordt created a menu inspired by traditional Hong Kong street food and Western-influenced dishes from the region, such as Happy Toast, a Hong Kong-style French toast topped with burnt coconut cream and condensed milk; and Congee, a traditional rice porridge with braised shitakes, a soft poached egg and yao cha guai (Chinese fried dough).

Full menu after the jump. (more…)
