Brunch With a Napoleon Complex

Wonkabout

Complete with a French-accented waitstaff, a large menu of generally delicious Gallic brunch dishes, and a charming bistro atmosphere and decor (including an outdoor seating area), Napoleon Bistro in Adams Morgan is an excellent brunch choice.


Good brunches begin with excellent (and complimentary) bread. Napoleon offers an interesting bread basket containing an extensive assortment of bakery items along with jam and butter. The walnut raisin bread and the Pain au levain (a sourdough French bread) were the highlights. The jam was not homemade, but was a decent variety. But this bistro charges $5 for the basket.

There are a variety of notable omelets, though the menu copywriter got a little carried away, calling the Da Vinci omelet "a dream come true" and the Michelangelo"a Masterpiece."

I liked the Rembrandt, which contains brie, fresh parsley and sun-dried tomatoes. While the menu writer didn't rave about it, the eggs were perfectly done, the cheese was nice and creamy, and the vegetables were fresh.

The crepes are also good choices. One of the best is more Italian than French -- the Florentine, made with Roma tomatoes, ricotta cheese, pine nuts, and basil in a roasted garlic pesto sauce. The soft cheese complements the toasted pine nuts well. Napoleon Bistro doesn't stiff you on the portion size, either, as this dish comes with two side-by-side crepes. The other crepe highlight is the Lisbon, which has smoked salmon, red onions, dill and cream cheese.

The coffee was merely ordinary and not hot enough, despite the menu's claims. Otherwise, Napoleon Bistro is a solid choice.

Napoleon Bistro, 1847 Columbia Road NW, Washington DC 20009, (202) 299-9630.

Ann Coulter is not impressed with Donald Trump's presumptuous plan to stop ripping babies away from their mothers and sending them to infant prison. For quite a while, Ann has been obsessively lamenting the very idea that American people even have children to "fill their lives with joy," but now (lol, "now") Ann has shifted her rage to immigrant people. Every time you watch her waving her alien-length arms around in a ritualistic frenzy over how shitty liberals are, just remember that we have already seen the emptiness of her soul laid bare. Remember that time she wanted to eat your baby because you got a tax credit?

It's just another Wednesday in an America that snatched kids from their parents and locked them up in old Walmarts. Trump just signed an unneeded executive order ending his heinous child separation policy, but his "the bad guy mobster in a mobster movie" tactics might've had some permanent damage. What remains of the shriveled-up soul of the grand old poor-screwing Republican party has finally had enough.
