Take a food tour around NoVA during Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week. From August 28 to September 3, restaurants across the DMV will offer $25 brunch and lunch menus and $40 or $55 dinner menus.
Participating restaurants cover a wide range of cuisines, from Indian to modern American to French. No matter the time of day or your palate, you’ll find restaurants that fit your cravings.
This $25 brunch offers a choice of appetizer and main course, including quiche lorraine, a monte cristo, and French toast with red berry coulis. No meal is complete without dessert (even brunch), so order the banana flambé or bread pudding. 6876 Langston Blvd., Arlington
Mark your calendars because this seafood brunch is only offered on September 3. Start with an order of pain perdu, a New Orleans-style French toast. Then try an order of shrimp and red Thai curry or grilled arctic char. End your brunch with a key lime tart or chocolate mousse bomb. 11960 Democracy Dr., Reston
