5 Great Outdoor Brunches Across the U.S.

3. The Fairmont Washington, D.C.

The Fairmont Washington D.C. is one of the greenest dining locations in its community. And that's not just because of its outdoors.

This venue developed an environmentally conscious reputation because it also uses primarily locally sourced food and keeps bees on the roof, from which its make its own honey. Executive sous chef Ian Bens grows many of the herbs used in the restaurant's food, including chives and basil, right in the lush courtyard where patrons enjoy brunch.

"We have a beautiful courtyard that you can sit in," Bens says. "It's got a beautiful marble fountain in the center and all kinds of indigenous trees."

The menu includes a seafood buffet display stocked with local oysters and smoked salmon from Catskill, N.Y. There's also a creative selection of salads, a dessert buffet and more standard breakfast items, including chicken sausage and bacon. Brunch also includes your choice of an entree, such as eggs Benedict or an omelette. And no brunch would be complete without bottomless mimosas, which are part of the $48 price.

"We also have house-made sodas, ginger ale and cherry vanilla sodas that are made onsite," Bens says. "And we offer a lifestyle cuisine menu that includes gluten-free, macrobiotic, vegan, raw, heart-healthy and diabetic."

Brunch runs from May to September.
