American in Logan Circle, U Street & Columbia Heights

The Pig lives up to its name, offering plenty of porcine-inspired treats, from crispy shank to a decadent cutlet-and-gruyere sandwich that will leave you lost for words. There's non-porky goodness as well, including some wonderful truffle-crusted mac and cheese and a bourbon-blasted sticky toffee pudding (that said, this isn't the best spot for herbivores). Great brunch value.
