First Look: Zengo DC’s Bottomless Brunch

One of my favorite new trends hitting restaurants in DC is the Bottomless Brunch craze.  While bottomless brunch cocktails used to be all the rage, a lot of local brunch spots are starting to embrace

Pomegranate Mimosa

bottomless small plates as well, allowing brunch-goers to try a variety of different menu items to complement their never-ending bloody’s and mimosas.  I for one am a huge fan.

This weekend, Craig and I headed to Gallery Place’s Latin-Asian fusion hot spot Zengo, to try their new Bottomless Brunch menu and it turned out to be a pleasant departure from the usual selection of scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage and waffles.   And while there were dishes incorporating brunch favorites like bacon and eggs, Zengo’s brunch is more of a Latin-Asian lunch, but that was fine with us given our early morning and our 12:30 pm reservation.  I started with a pomegranate mimosa (yum) and we had everything from Sushi, to Bacon Fried Rice to Thai-Chicken Empanadas.  For dessert – we went with the warm and savory churros, served with Mexican Hot-Chocolate.  Yum.

Zengo’s bottomless brunch is well-priced at $35/person ($10 for children under 10) and is served Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.  Its menu includes an all-you-can-eat selection of ceviche and sushi, salad, dim sum and antojitos, and brunch plates along with seven distinctive brunch cocktails.  Check out the full menu here, and take a look at some of our favorite dishes below! Cheers!
