D.C.’s politicos are thrilled to return to their favorite spot for power breakfasts in the nation’s capital. After a $1 million makeover, Seasons is back. And Urban Daddy says you may just have a George Wills sighting among the “spectacled, Brooks Brothers–clad gentlemen” seated at “the newly added power tables along the rear window, where you can have the sun at your back while surveying the whole room.”
A destination in itself for over three decades, Seasons restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Washington D.C. has been transformed into an elegant, residential space with custom-made décor: English walnut dining tables, mahogany chairs, silk and wool carpets, and built-in cases covered with mirrors. The renovation also added 800 square feet to the dining room. Choose a window seat and you can survey both the scene inside and the C&O Canal outside. Privacy is of utmost importance here, so tables are spaced far enough apart to allow for intimate conversations.
Chef Douglas Anderson’s menu will melt even the hardest of anti-breakfast hearts; tempting offerings include breakfast sliders with sausage patties, clothbound cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs; smashed chocolate croissant French toast with raspberry compote; and an egg white omelet with jumbo lump crab, boursin, roasted tomato, and baby arugula salad. Seasons at Four Seasons Hotel Washington—located at 2800 Pennsylvania Ave NW-- serves breakfast Monday through Friday from 6:30 to 10:30 am and on weekends from 7:00 to 10:30 am.
