Gift Idea for Mom: Brunch at Georgetown’s Dried-Out Eateries

WMAL News reports that at least two eateries damaged by flooding at Georgetown's Washington Harbour could be back in business just in time for Mother's Day brunch.

"Nick's Riverside Grille and maybe Tony and Joe's [Seafood Place] can make it for Mother's Day," Gregory Casten, operations manager at Oceanside Management, tells the radio station.

Casten adds that Mexican restaurant Cabanas was more severely damaged by the April 18 deluge–somewhat contradicting earlier reports from the scene indicating that Tony and Joe's was the hardest hit in the disaster.

Casten says of Cabanas: "Ironically, even though it's the farthest from the river the water hit it with such force it sustained the greatest amount of damage."

He estimates the total damages at about $3 million.

    IF you want something really special for mom, drive out to Lansdowne Resort for their Mother's Day brunch. It's beatifully laid out indoor, but also has a great patio overlooking the green hills and golf course. quite and spacious; plus the food is local and stands out among brunches with home-made everything, even the bacon is cured on the property. I'd do this before I go to any stuffy G'town restaurant.
