Bitches Who Brunch Bitch Up D.C.’s Worst Brunches of 2011

One thing I've noticed about the blog Bitches Who Brunch: these self-proclaimed bitches don't bitch nearly enough. On Thursday, though, the bitches unleashed a year's worth of bitching in a single super-bitchy post, dishing up their picks for the D.C.-area's worst brunches of 2011. OK, so the bitchiness is only half of the story. The bitches also praise a number of places. But, in the interest of focus, let's stick with the bitching.

On the bitches' shit list: Mie n Yu ("horrendous service, soggy salads, and cold brunch dishes"), Taberna del Alabardero ("overpriced...one of the worst [buffets] we’ve experienced"), Whitlow’s on Wilson ("worst Bloody Mary bar"), Circa ("worst mimosa"), The Diner ("worst place to brunch sober"), Puro Café ("worst patio...everything was stained, dirty, haphazardly disorganized, and poorly taken care of"), Blue Duck Tavern ("staggering $7 cups of coffee" !!!), Open City ("worst wait"), and, finally, Tabaq ("require[s] a climb up not one, not two, but three steep sets of narrow wooden stairs. Treacherous with a hangover.")

    Blue Duck may be overpriced but the food is incredible; I have a hard time believing that ranks among the worst in town (unlike Taberna del Alabardero, which is both overpriced and underwhelming).

    I'm not a big fan of brunch, so when did this become a Thing? Why is every place suddenly fighting to have the splashiest, booziest, girly gastronomic gorge-a-thon?

    Because restauranteurs discovered they could take two decent meals and make one lousy expensive one with a slice of canteloupe, champale, frozen orange juice, and V8. Besides, brunch is so 2010. Elevenses is where it's at. Where else can you get a cup of Lipton tea, a McVitties digestive, and a junkpunch for $29.95?

    Try brunch in New York City - thats a shit show battle for seats and the best deals. One thing you wont find is "endless" anything. The one drink you get free or pay for actually has alcohol in it. In DC you end up with a second midday hangover from all the sugar in the mimosas and cheap champagne.
