Jill the AVS designated Bloody Mary taste tester.
Sorry it's been so long for a brunch review guys!
I've been travelling/had plans the last few weekends so it has been hard to
make the brunch posts happen.
BUT I have a few new places to share with you over the next few weeks so get excited :)
Last weekend, My roommate, Jillian, and I headed into DC for brunch
before a friends birthday back in Virginia.
Jill has made a pretty great list of new brunch places for us to check out and the
first place on that list is the The Fainting Goat.
The Fainting Goat is located right on U St close to 14th and has a cute
exterior that you could easily miss if you aren't paying attention
We sat in the back corner of the restaurant next to a tinted window
that gave off the perfect light for some food pictures.
What initially drew me to the menu was how many goat cheese options there were
(Jill and I are obsessed with goat cheese) especially the goat cheese fondue appetizer.
We split the app but I felt that I could have possibly eaten the whole dish myself.
It could have been my favorite item I have had in awhile.
For entree's, Jill selected the the Shrimp and Grits.
I actually had never had Shrimp & Grits before so I can't give too much
detail into how it tasted but I know Jill had no complaints and really enjoyed her plate.
I opted for the Strata which was an egg, shrimp, goat cheese (duh),
and onions that came on a bed of salad.
I will say that I wasn't over the moon about the Strata.
I just don't think I was super wow-ed by the flavor.
The salad really took me by surprise. The dressing for the salad was perfect.
Something that The Fainting Goat also offers that I have not mentioned yet is
that they offer a bottomless drinks option for $17.
You have 2 hours to choose between an interchangeable selection of Mimosas
(white cranberry, orange, or mango) or Bloody Mary's.
All-in-all I really enjoyed The Fainting Goat.
The cheese, the drinks, the adorable baby yoga guru
(story for another time) made for a great experience.
I foresee myself going back to get more of my goat cheese fix.
