As a resident of this neighborhood, I keep hoping this place was better. The service was just terrible, and both the calamari were stone cold. The menu is uninspiring as well. The name Brick Lane made me think of the great ethnic food on the...More

Opted to come here for their brunch. Small place with a small outdoor patio. Not enough umbrellas so be prepared to bring some sunscreen and sunglasses. The food was ok and the prices moderate. Overall an ok experience.

17th street is a tough area to start a restaurant. There is amazing competition with some of the best restaurants in DC between P and R street. So it was a good surprise that Brick Lane was able to hold their own in this space....More

Brick Lane is amazing! They were able to cater to our group of 20+ people for a birthday brunch. Great atmosphere and the waiters were super attentive to our needs. The food is incredibly delicious and their menu was the main reason I chose this...More
