Foodie Friday–Not Your Typical Brunch

When you think of brunch (which I’m sure you do frequently, if you live in DC), I’m guessing the following things come to mind: pancakes, bacon, waffles, omelets, cake, hash browns, carving stations, sandwiches, pastries…the list goes on and on.

But what about hummus? Falafel? Fried halloumi?


One of the great things about DC is the culinary variety. Brunch doesn’t have to just mean a typical “American” menu. I recently went to Levante’s (19th St at Dupont), where I was blown away by their Mediterranean brunch buffet. In addition to “traditional” brunch fare, I was treated to some Mediterranean delights!

Are you a brunch fan? What’s your favorite non-traditional brunch??
