Tabard Inn Restaurant

American in Dupont Circle & Kalorama

Dinners are seasonal twists on classic fare – scallops with parsnip puree, veal with sugarsnap peas – but it’s the deceptively normal weekend brunch menu that stands out. The poached eggs, warm, whipped-cream-topped doughnuts and oysters are sublime. Grab a table in the cozy, English-manor-like interior or the splendid, ivy-walled garden courtyard. Reservations recommended.
