A Wonderful Brunch at Fiola Mare

This past Sunday I surprised my mother for her birthday by taking her to Fiola Mare in DC for brunch. It is currently ranked the No. 1 spot in Washingtonian's Top 100 restaurants in 2016. I couldn't agree more with them. It was a perfect Sunday brunch. The moment we got there until the moment we left, the service was great. They wished my mother a happy birthday when she sat down. She was definitely not expecting it and started blushing (hehe). The brunch menu was on point.  I ordered their mimosa while my mother ordered their peach blossom mocktail. The peach blossom mocktail had a wonderful taste to it and it came with a cute flower. For our anitpasti, we ordered the grilled green asparagus and the zuppa di ortiche. Both were simple, but delicious. Then for our main course, we ordered Paccheri and the Spaghetti Gragano alla Granseola. Both of our meals were so yummy and just perfect. Lastly, for dessert we ordered the bomboloni and the piemontese warm chocolate cake. I have to say that the award for the best dessert went to the chocolate cake. Oh, I almost forgot! The brunch came with a basket of warm pastry and breads (croissant, pain au chocolat, cinnamon roll, herbed brioche, walnut raisin bread, fresh fruit jams & farmer’s butter). The cinnamon roll was to die for!! I highly suggest for you to check out this restaurant when you're in DC. Currently my favorite restaurant. 

What's your favorite restaurant?! Please do share cause I'm always looking to try new places :)
