DC Harvest Introduces New Dishes, Updated Brunch For Fall

From our friends at DC Harvest...

Washington’s Top Spot for Comfort Food Launches New Fall Menu

In a restaurant landscape where “comfort food” equals heavy and “fine dining” commonly translates to calorie-laden, the idea of upscale cuisine that leaves you satisfied but not stuffed feels unfamiliar. Enter DC Harvest, a new Washington eatery that is changing the way we view and enjoy classic comfort food. By serving balanced plates of appropriately-portioned and properly-sauced dishes that feature whole, fresh ingredients, DC Harvest is giving diners a chance to indulge in decadent-tasting meals without feeling guilty.

With an emphasis on utilizing seasonal ingredients from local farms and vendors, the year old kitchen & bar puts a modern spin on American cuisine by highlighting diverse culinary preparations and throwing in unexpected flavors.

In honor of fall (and in anticipation of the cold winter weather to come) DC Harvest has released a mouthwatering new menu.  Especially enticing dishes include:

• Roasted Chesapeake Blue Catfish with Winter Vegetable Bagna Carta and Toasted Breadcrumbs ($22)
• Grilled Lemongrass Chili Pork Belly with Farro, Black Rice, Kale & Almonds ($23)
• Cherry Wood Smoked Bacon & Monterey Jack “Doughnuts” served alongside Creole Mustard and Micro Herb Salad ($12)
• Mom’s Meatloaf with Green Beans, Shitake Mushrooms & Bacon Gravy ($23, available on Wednesdays and Thursdays only.)
• Pan-Roasted Scallops with Red Kuri Pumpkin, Brussel Sprouts, Shitake Mushrooms & Pumpkin Seeds ($25)
• Creamy Celery Root and Leek Soup topped with Toasted Walnuts & Pea Shoots ($7)

On Saturdays and Sundays between 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM, DC Harvest serves up a brunch that will appeal to the palates of everyone in your group. Craving something savory? Try the House-made Spicy Lamb Sausage Scramble or 5 oz Tavern Steak & Organic Eggs (both served with Sweet Potato Hash & Market Greens.) If you’re looking for something on the sweeter side, the Spelt Buttermilk Pancakes topped with Apple Butter and Sorghum Syrup or the Fruit & Nut Granola with Greek Yogurt and Honey are right up your alley.

By popular demand, Chef Arthur Ringel’s famous Old Bay Fried Chicken, which, up until now, has only been available on Mondays, is now a permanent fixture on the restaurant’s brunch menu. And since we all know that no brunch in the Capital is complete without a morning cocktail, DC Harvest has now added $20 Bottomless Bloody Mary’s to the menu (in addition to the $15 Bottomless Mimosas, which have been available since the restaurant started serving brunch.)

DC Harvest is located at 517 H Street, NE. Dinner is served Sunday-Thursday from 5:30-11:00 PM and Saturday-Sunday from 5:30 PM - 1:00 AM. To make reservations please call (202) 629-3296.
