Why wood(ward) you sleep in when you could go to brunch?

I’ll be honest, I actually hadn’t heard too much about Woodward Table other than seeing a few glimpses of some pretty good-looking meals on Instagram over the past few months. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into a brunch there, but as soon as I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised by the…

Ophelia’s is o(fish)ally a hit for brunch!

The Chesapeake Room has officially been revamped into Ophelia’s Fish House right on Barrack’s Row and dang, is it a wonderful joint! The brunch items are wicked good and definitely exceeded my expectations. My oldest brother, Tom, and I had a great brunch at Ophelia’s right before the Christmas holiday.  

This top restaurant in D.C. does not need to fish(ers) for compliments..

Georgetown is always my favorite place to paddleboard/kayak on the waterfront, to stroll around with friends or to shop in and then spend much more money than planned. Interestingly enough, I never really go out to eat in the area because I will typically trip it to my favorite shop, Baked & Wired, for a treat and espresso. I always, however, pass by…

This will bake your mouth water….

I love when something or someone inspires me to make a new breakfast dish. My friend, Colleen McNamara, whom I just met this year through my good friend at SLU, Emma Garfield, is not only an avid Breakfastwithbex fan – making just about every dish I create – but is simply one of the cutest,…

Bex’s Go-To Brunch Joint in DC: Central Michel Richard

We all know the feeling: the depressed, sad emotional roller-coaster you experience after you just had one of the best weekends ever or the most memorable visit from a best friend or family member. The 24 hours following my brother’s visit to DC for four days this past weekend was bittersweet as I reflected on how much fun…

Oh, there’s no place like home for the hollandaise…

Happy Sunday, friends! Sundays are a day to give thanks for everything you have: family, friends, good health, a roof over your head, love and…food. This week I have uncovered the true meaning behind being thankful for food, and since this is a food blog, I will spare you the details. But, if the word…

Kum-quat, Come all!

Interestingly enough, as I sit here typing this blog post, I am in my DC apartment after just being notified of a two hour delay for all Federal agencies in Washington, DC due to a whopping amount of snow, folks. That is correct. Not two feet. Not even two inches….but yes, a light sprinkle of white feather-dust…

Holy crepe, it’s 2015!

2014 allowed me to see how investing time in something I am truly passionate about can open up new possibilities and even more creativity in many aspects of my life. When I started “Breakfastwithbex” in March of 2014 as a spontaneous food Instagram account, I truly never expected to be ringing in the new year with my…
