Brookland's Finest Bar & Kitchen

Located at the corner of 12th & Jackson in NE DC, Brookland's Finest Bar & Kitchen features classic American cuisine with a bistro flair. The kitchen features a seasonal menu with a variety of meals which highlight local, seasonal ingredients. Rotating specials and drinks specially crafted by the award-winning staff round out the menu. Closest Metro is Brookland-CUA.

I planned a brewery tour for the day and to fuel up beforehand, Keith wanted to check out this restaurant in his old college neighborhood.   The metro line is a bit out of our way, so we took a Lyft there.  The interior is very reminiscent of Matchbox with exposed air ducts, a skylight, and lots of reclaimed wood.

We were hoping to order lunch, but only the brunch menu was available.  I ordered the Tony's Breakfast Club - French Toast stuffed with Applewood bacon, Taylor Pork Roll, cheddar eggs, and drizzled with Dijon maple syrup.  It was served with a side of mixed greens.  It tasted like a Monte Cristo sandwich and was a nice combination of salty and sweet.

Keith ordered the Colonel Burger made with certified Angus beef, pickled onions, Tillamook Cheddar, Applewood smoked bacon on a brioche bun.  It was served with two large tempura onion rings.  Th burger was decent and overall provided a nice foundation to a day full of beer.

BY the time we had finished our meal, the place had filled up with young groups and families.  Brookland's Finest seemed to be a popular neighborhood joint, but we would not make our way out here regularly.
