Renowned Petworth dinner spot Himitsu is testing out brunch service for the next three weekends.

The critically acclaimed Asian restaurant (828 Upshur Street NW) is giving midday meal service a go by serving brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 25, Sunday, April 1, and Sunday, April 7. The same no-reservations policy facing nighttime visitors applies — which means the 20-odd seats inside remain first come, first served.

Washington City Paper reports that featured offerings from 2018 James Beard Foundation Award finalist Kevin Tien include; congee with braised pork, pickled shallots, fried shallots, and scallions ($22); Japanese pancakes with cabbage, Kewpie mayonnaise, bonito, and scallions ($14); and French toast with yuzu-berry compote ($14). Its popular Korean-style fried chicken and biscuits ($16) will also be available.

Co-owner and Barmini alum Carlie Steiner’s lineup of specialty cocktails ($15 each) include a kimchi Michelada with sea salt-watermelon gose beer, kimchi juice, lime, and pickled watermelon rind, as well as mimosas served by the glass ($12) or the bottle ($50).
