Now open near your pet-friendly apartment in DC, Nina May has been capturing the hearts of locals one meal at a time. The owners set out with one goal in mind when they started the restaurant: become the go-to for locals no matter what time of day. Weekend brunch has been crazy busy due to the popularity of dishes like braised pork belly, buckwheat pancakes with braised apples, chicken and biscuits, and of course, the tasty cocktails. It’s a must-try.
Happy hour is also a staple pre-dinner, running Monday through Friday from 5-7 p.m. with $6 cocktail and wine specials, $5 beers, $1 oysters, and some $4 bites including their incredible grilled cheese and tots. Dinner is served up almost daily from 5-10 p.m. A fun way to experience it is to choose the Chef’s Choice menu. It’s $39 for a surprise pre-fixe chosen by the chef daily. It’ll never be the same twice.
