Finest is a neighborhood gem in Brookland. The southern-influenced food is consistently great, prices are fair, and the servers are friendly. It’s also pretty child friendly, making it an easy choice for brunch or an early dinner with little ones.

Best place we’ve found in Brookland for a nice meal. Try the chicken sandwich (fried is very good). The prime rib is excellent. Good service and nice atmosphere.

My wife and I had a delicious lunch here on a recent DC visit. Our Pit Beef "sanitches" were a savory delight! The hand cut fries were to die for. Add to this the awesome tempora onion rings with "tiger sauce" and an incredible lunch...More
