The Carlyle Club

Went there this Sat - what an incredible place! The food was good (great rack of lamb), and the setting really campy - in a good way. Great jazz singer (Satin Doll Trio) with a lap dog on stage drinking water out of a martini glass. Wonderful place to go for a long slow dinner with a special someone.

The Very Best Brunch (not buffet) in D.C./NOVA/MD

The Ritz in Crystal City does have a buffett, but boy it is incredible. Oysters, lamb, and yes - fresh squeezed orange juice. I took someone there this past Sun and they were astounded.


Where is the best place to eat brunch in Alexandria, or close to Alex?

Place to eat near Dulles??

I have to pick someone up at Dulles next Friday, and was wondering about a good place to eat in the general vicinity while we wait for traffic to cool. Any suggestions? I'm open to all types of food...
