Who doesn’t love mimosas with a water view? Here’s where to get outside for brunch this weekend:
2100 Second St., SW
This massive, indoor/outdoor 500-seat seafood restaurant—the first to open at the burgeoning Buzzard Point development—sits at the intersection of the Anacostia and Potomac rivers and flanks a large marina (so yes, water views are widely available). We like to set up by one of the patio fire pits or at the outdoor bar for weekend brunch with an Ivy City Smokehouse smoked-fish board; crab-dip-stuffed doughnuts; smoked salmon Benedict; or shrimp n’ grits.
