Savoring Summer with RIS Popsicle Brunch

FoodLibby RasmussenComment

Frank Ocean wasn't kidding when he recently sang "Summer's not at long as it used to be" on his new album Blonde (which you should 100% buy now.) Luckily, DC hot spots like RIS, in Foggy Bottom, are keeping it alive with their bottomless Popsicle Mimosa Brunch. 

With a watermelon mint and orange ginger pineapple, the Popsicle Mimosas flavors did not disappoint. Bonus: bottomless is only $20. 

In addition to our mimosas, we indulged in a charcuterie and cheese board that did not disappoint. Helllllo Amish eggs. 

For something sweet, we couldn't refuse the gooey cinnamon roll topped with powdered sugar and mint. 

Our favorites were definitely the salmon poke and the ceviche margarita, which I can't recommend enough. Lime marinated scallops with chillies, orange, avocado, topped with tequila ice, it's like this dish was made for me. I'll need to return ASAP to feed the cravings I'm already having for this dish. 

Overall, the brunch at RIS was fantastic, with or without the Popsicle Mimosas (but please keep this tradition around RIS, we need at least another 4 months of summer!) 
Make sure to make your reservation at RIS soon for this amazing brunch! 
RIS is located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood at 2275 L Street NW.
