Brunch at Front Page
4201 Wilson Blvd # 103
Arlington, VA 22230
Frontpage Arlington is one of the Caps’s (Washington Capital’s hockey team) bars, which many people (include yours truly) like to watch the games at , little did I know that they serve Sunday brunch there!
When you first walk in you are immediately greeted with a create your own Bloody Mary bar and the beginning of the brunch buffet. The prices on the Bloody Mary can vary depending on the type of vodka used, but they seemed to be running about $5 per drink. If a Bloody Mary is not your cup of tea they also have $1 Mimosa that go along with the brunch. (If you could not tell from previous post I love Mimosas!)
The buffet I felt had a great selection of both breakfast and other foods. The first part of the buffet consisted of salads, smoked salmon, tomatoes and mozzarella, and baked goods such as muffins, croissants, bagels, etc. Next were combination of lunch food and breakfast such as sausage, Belgian Waffles, pancakes, French toast, Blacken Chicken Fettuccine and scrambled eggs. I will have to say the Blacken Chicken Fettuccine was awesome! I was not the only one going back for seconds! There was also a carving station and create your own omelet station which included shrimp! Many places I have gone to in the past had an omelet station, but they did not include shrimp! The buffet had many more items, but its best to leave that secret until you go there!
If a buffet is not quite what you want, they also have an A La Carte menu, which runs between $7.00 and $10.00. A lot of the same items are featured on the menu but for a cheaper price than the buffet.
Front Page is a great place to have brunch if you want to catch an early game on TV or have a low-key brunch with friends. You have the option of sitting in a dining area or at the bar. The only thing that was a little disheartening was the service that was provided to us. It was very hard to get the servers attention ( his may have been because they were watching a game on TV) I had to do addition research to find out the prices of the drinks for brunch because they were not marked any where and when I asked about them I could not get a complete answer. It was like pulling teeth to find out what the drink specials were and how much they cost!
All in all we had a great experience there, I would rate this brunch on a scale ranging from one to ten as a seven. If you wanted to start a Sunday Funday their it would be quit easy due to the $1 Mimosa, $5 Bloody Marys and you are already at a bar with some sort of sport game on.
Try it out and enjoy your brunch! Stay turned for more brunch reviews!
