Bar Chinois

If you’re looking for the drag brunch with the best food, Bar Chinois in Mt. Vernon Triangle is the only option. The Chinese fusion restaurant hosts a show every third Sunday and the tickets run $35—show only.  But the dim sum is so damn good, it doesn’t matter. Grab the steamed shumai and gyoza de boeuf, both of which come out piping hot and fully stuffed. Bottomless drinks run $30 for the course of the show, which is from 1-3pm (though you can be seated as early as noon). What really makes Bar Chinois’ brunch a notch above the rest is that there are no bad seats. The space is compact, with all the right walkways positioned so that everyone has equal access to upclose performances—which are fire. Oh, and there’s an afterparty until 5pm.
