Where You Can Eat Jan. 20, Drink Until Late
Washingtonpost.com's Going Out Gurus today posted their latest list of which restaurants will be open for breakfast and/or lunch on inauguration day. The Gurus' Julia Beizer also chats up some downtown restaurateurs about their plans.
"We're going crazy," said Spike Mendholson of Good Stuff Eatery. Starting at 7 a.m., the restaurant will offer special breakfast sandwiches to early birds. At lunch, it's offering a streamlined version of the menu -- to help the lunch line move faster -- and to-go bags for those on the move.
On the same block, Tune Inn will open at 6:30 a.m. for coffee service. Breakfast service starts at 7 a.m. and the booze starts flowing at 8 a.m.
Penn Quarter Sports Tavern, home of a shockingly good burger, opens at 8 a.m. on Inauguration Day. Chefs are working to develop a limited breakfast menu.
Proof could be a good bet for a more upscale meal. From 10 a.m. until 2:30 a.m., the restaurant offers a $75 buffet brunch that includes unlimited champage. The festivities will be shown on four flat-screens.
Elsewhere, the Gurus' Fritz Hahn runs down the list of bars that have applied for the extended inauguration week hours.
