CAPITOL HILL—Garrison has a new brunch menu for the fall. Jersey transplants, how does a fancy chef version of a Taylor Ham pork roll sandwich on a Parker House roll sound? They’ll have a few breakfast sandwiches, plus aebleskiver (Danish doughnuts), eggplant terrine, and more. There’s also a special brunch event scheduled for Nov. 13 with One Acre Farm.

GEORGETOWN—Jazz up the weekend at The Graham. The hotel’s cocktail bar, The Alex, is going to host a series of “Speakeasy Jazz Nights” from 8-11 p.m. It kicks off this weekend with singer Lena Seikaly. There’s a $20 minimum but no cover charge.[Eaterwire]

The Momofuku-affiliated bakery launched its holiday menu this week, and it also includes a pumpkin pie layer cake and pumpkin pie cake truffles, along with the popular croissants. The bakery has also brought back its Chocolate Chocolate cookie and will offer a Red, White, and Blue Birthday cake in D.C. until election day. [EaterWire]

CLIFTON—A new chef over at Trummer’s on Main means a menu revamp. Jon Cropf has a new tasting menu option called “Mercy of the Chef,” priced at $103 per person before wine pairings. Expect dishes like lavender honey-glazed duck and butternut squash soup. The restaurant still has a la carte items and its “Petite Gourmand” menu geared to kids. [EaterWire]

FALLS CHURCH—Here’s a cool theme for a dinner: dinosaurs. Falls Church restaurant 2941 has scheduled the dinner for Nov. 13 and even is hosting a display of dinosaur artifacts, from a nest of eggs to a triceratops skull, on loan for the evening. Courses include a “bird’s nest” appetizer to a “Mosquitos in Amber” dessert (plus a big Tomahawk steak as an entree choice, naturally). The dinner is $85 per person; details here. [EaterWire]
