Melrose Georgetown Hotel Presents Decadent Easter Brunch

Looking for a farm-to-fork option for Easter Brunch? Executive Chef Nate Lindsay provides that (and then some) at Jardenea, the signature restaurant of the Melrose Georgetown Hotel at 2430 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. The April 20th brunch costs $58 and runs from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Click here for reservations.

The 240-room Melrose Georgetown Hotel wrapped up an extensive renovation last April, almost six months after the unveiling of Jardenea. I haven't had a chance to visit since; but I'm chomping at the bit to try Crisp Malted Waffles with Soft Cinnamon Chantilly, Hand-Carved, Rosemary-Scented Domestic Lamb with Whole Grain Mustard Demi Glaze, Poached Chilled Atlantic Salmon and a wide assortment of desserts (Cappuccino Cheesecake anyone?)

Jardenea lounge

Can't make it next Sunday? Jardenea is open 7 days a week, and serves breakfast daily 6:30-11 AM, lunch 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM and dinner 5-10 PM. There's also a lounge menu available for quick bites. Lastly, with spring finally here... don't forget about al fresco dining in Jardenea's inviting garden. Decisions, decisions.
