Marcel’s Marvelous Sunday Brunch

Sundays in Washington just got even more fabulous thanks to Marcel’s by Robert Wiedmaier. For 17 years, this West-End staple has enthralled diners with the finest food and service. In 2016, however, the award-winning restaurant is now serving what is arguably the district’s favorite meal – brunch. For just $65 from 11:30 – 2:30 p.m. […]
