This week’s Eater Awards voting wraps up today with the Brunch of the Year category.
Here is the 2018 ballot in D.C., presented in alphabetical order:
- All-Purpose Capitol Riverfront, which brought chef Mike Friedman’s tributes to old-school New Jersey pizza to Navy Yard with a brunch service that includes breakfast pies and Sicilian disco fries.
- Buena Vida, which gave Silver Spring a place to eat bottomless Mexican brunch at a restaurant from Ambar owner Ivan Iricanin.
- Casolare, which rolled out a Jewish-Roman brunch menu in Glover Park, giving D.C. a new option for latkes, bagels, and lox.
- The Smith, the American brasserie from New York that picked U Street NW for its second D.C. location, bringing the neighborhood Benedicts and complimentary morning cocktails.
- Unconventional Diner, which brought classed-up riffs on American classics from Michel Richard protege David Deshaies near the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
All 24 Eater cities and the Eater national site will grant prizes for Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. In Washington, there will also be wild card categories this year for Neighborhood of the Year and Brunch of the Year. For a look at the 2017 D.C. winners, head here.
Each category will crown an editor’s choice winner and a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on Wednesday, December 5. Vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Brunch of the Year category in the poll below. Polls are open for 24 hours.
