Fainting Goat

Fainting Goat is a neighborhood spot in the 14th Street & U Street corridor that serves fresh local foods, craft beers and spirits coupled with a friendly staff.  Closest Metro is U Street.

Keith and I headed to Fainting Goat for brunch.  We decided to get the bottomless mimosa options for $17 per person.  You have a choice of orange, mango, or white cranberry but we each stuck with the classic orange.  Our server explained the portion sizes are 'medium' and good enough for two people to share.  We were pretty hungry and a few items stood out to us, so we started with the Avocado Toast topped with pickled onion, watermelon radish, soft boiled egg, togarashi, and a side salad of arugula and fennel with a lemon vinaigrette.  This dish was delightful and perfect for the hot weather.

Next, we shared the Eggs in Pastry - egg whites topped with spring vegetables and ricotta.  This was another light vegetarian brunch dish; very European in nature and one that I quite enjoyed.  The asparagus and fiddle heads were tasty.

Keith wanted to try the Chicken and Waffles - topped with a fried egg, served on a five spice waffle and drizzled with a spicy sambal maple syrup, this dish had a little kick to it.  The sauce reminded Keith of DC's  own mumbo sauce - a little sweet, sour, and spicy.  The chicken was cooked nicely; juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

Lastly, we shared the Coffee Cake topped with pecans and warm caramel.  The skillet cake was light and airy and the caramel sauce was very buttery.

Overall, we had a filling brunch and the service was attentive and courteous.  Our bottomless mimosas were refilled regularly.  We sat upstairs, which appeared to be much less crowded than downstairs.
