Just as you’d see in the city it's inspired by, outdoor eating (and especially drinking) is king at Dauphine’s. The New Orleans-inspired restaurant from chef Kristen Essig has a covered bar and seating area outdoors where revelers can enjoy specials on beer, wine, cocktails, and snacks including Black-Eyed Pea Falafel and local Harris Creek oysters, alongside a menu that melds Creole- and Chesapeake-inspired cuisine.

Visit the French Quarter in New Orleans for brunch without ever leaving DC. The interior of Dauphine’s is marked by charming brasserie-like touches and the giant atrium bar of your dreams. Brunch launched earlier this year with a live jazz trio, interesting takes on creole classics like a Hot Sausage Po Boy, Gumbo with roast pork, and a brunch basket that includes buttermilk biscuits and banana bread. Plus, you can spend the morning downing “Hurricane Style” mimosas or nursing a hangover with a Creole Bloody Mary.

The gist: As they say in New Orleans—lez le bon temps rouler! And the good times definitely roll at Dauphine’s, a restaurant that pays homage to the Crescent City.
The food: Expect an abundance of New Orleans-themed dishes, like lightly dusted beignets, seafood gumbo, and a raw bar that greets you at the door. Chef Kristen Essig called the Big Easy home for more than two decades and developed the menu and concept alongside chef and partner Kyle Bailey (also with The Salt Line). The duo utilizes Mid-Atlantic seafood including soft shell crabs, Chesapeake oysters, and rockfish. Order up a hurricane, and you might feel as if you’ve been transported to the French Quarter, and you can also find other expertly crafted cocktails from Neal Bodenheimer, owner of Cure, a top bar in New Orleans, and beverage director Donato Alvarez (The Salt Line).
