arlington rooftop: dinner & brunch.

I love roofs. I mean, who doesn’t? Every time I’m hanging out and loving life on a roof, I think to myself: I’m on a roof, I’m on a roof, Everybody look at me ’cause I’m standing on a roof…

Then I found a video to sing the song for me:

Mentioned in The Washington Post as one of the best area rooftops, Arlington Rooftop is a great place to just hang out and enjoy a drink while taking in the sights down below. Chris and I stopped by recently and it was so crowded in the standing area (probably the norm) that we decided to just get a table and enjoy some dinner.

Chris enjoyed his seared scallops, and I loved the choose-three-samplers option–reminding me of my old standby at Boston Market! The meal wasn’t the best we’d ever had–mostly, Chris felt the scallops were overpriced for their taste–but it was definitely satisfying and very enjoyable!

How could Arlington Rooftop not be an awesome meal experience? You’re on a roof!

While at dinner, we browsed through the brunch menu and were amazed at the prices. $3 mimosas and entrees around $10! I vowed to come back very soon and was actually able to make a brunch happen last weekend with Julianne. It was unfortunately quite a humid day, but we braved the weather and had a great time. The roof was pretty empty at 11:00am, but I’m hoping it was the DC humidity and/or the time of the morning that made it more scarce.

Julianne had a Veggie Omelet, a three egg omelet with avocado, sprouts, cheddar jack cheese, and tomatoes. She also tried the Beermosa, a light America Pilsner with fresh OJ. She said it tasted like a Blue Moon. I went for a mimosa and the Florentine Crepes, which included spinach, mushroom, and goat cheese with a Vidalia onion cream sauce. Both entrees came with breakfast potatoes–a major plus.

My crepes were delicious: light and to the point.  Julianne loved her omelet and ended up taking half of it back to eat for another meal.  All in all, we thought the brunch was awesome! I’ll definitely be back, especially because the location is so convenient and the prices are great.

And honestly, what could be be better than brunch on a roof?
