Some dishes you'll try once and find yourself obsessed, thinking about them when you're awake AND asleep. These are those dishes. These are the four best things Thrillist DC consumed in November while training for turkey over-consumption. As you've likely figured out, you should eat them, too. As an added bonus, everything in this crave-worthy quartet tops out at $12 bucks, starting with Slipstream’s epic eggs Benedict.
Slipstream (address and info)
Forget the standard brunch menu staple that soccer moms order when they’re feeling naughty enough to have some of the "bad" kind of cholesterol. Eggs Benedict is now an art form, and no one does it better than Slipstream. They top buttery brioche with smoky pork belly, mustard cheese, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce. But not just any hollandaise sauce. Slipstream’s version is boosted by the umami flavor of uni (aka sea urchin).
Slipstream’s Chef has a Japanese background and manages to work his magic in a kitchen that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, making this dish equally impressive. Since you’re trying this during weekend brunch, get it with a coffee cocktail; they’re so much more fun than mimosas, and serve as a symbol of the café’s intensely creative coffee program.
