Brunch at Pub and the People, Washington, DC

I doubt I'm the only one that decides I want to eat brunch later than 2pm on a Sunday (and while I'm excited about McDonalds All Day Breakfast, it's not going to cut it on a Sunday).  So I found this place called Pub and the People not far from the NoMa area right on North Captiol St. At R street NW ( DC people understand the intersection reference need). I walked in at 3:45 and asked if they were still serving brunch and the waitress handed me a small card with chef Corey's brunch options for the day

This is not the place you go if you want boring, basic and create in your sleep regular dishes, or an obscene and unhealthy portion of food. They do not offer an all you can eat brunch or a buffet at this time (it's a small place so I don't see a brunch buffet in the works). If you want a buffet and all you can eat, opt for Sequoia in Georgetown or Ozio's in DuPont Circle. However, you will generally get the same ingredients, but with a twist, and usually matched up in very unique, yet tasty ways. What I actually ordered was a combination of the two special brunch items because...well...I'm special like that (and I don't mean special in a good way). I wanted the sauce/gravy from one dish with the roasted eggs from the 2nd dish and the feta cheese (but not the tomatoe sauce because I don't like tomatoes) and the potatoes from both, with added bacon (I know...I said I'm special). What I received was the most uniquely awesome breakfast dish with two roasted eggs (which are similar to fried eggs with a softness but not runny in the middle), flavorful gravy (that I licked from my plate...I don't think anyone was watching), perfect bacon and fingerling potatoes. I think it was topped with beet spring leaves, but you can request cilantro instead if you don't like beets (because they do taste like beets :) Chef Corey created a perfect dish that I will be going back for next week. Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sunday's.  I believe my personal concoction is called the "Neeta" if you want to try it (ask for it by name :) - but of course tell your server that Chef Corey will know which dish that is (it won't be on the menu...I'm not that fly).

Another thing I like about this place is the outdoor seating. It was a little too cool and windy for me on Sunday to sit outside, but there were people enjoying the outside seating with small children and dogs. The entire place is seat yourself, and the service is laid back. The food comes out quickly, but it is a pub, so the servers have to cover the inside and outside so bring your patience hat. If you need more attention or swift service, sit near the kitchen :)
