In DC for the weekend, we looked forward to Sunday brunch at the highly-touted Ripple. Apparently brunch is a new undertaking at the restaurant. Coffee was ordered and came to the table lukewarm. No cream; they only have whole milk. I ordered two eggs and whole wheat toast. No bread available. I could have crackers or the homemade English muffin for a $2 extra charge. The muffin was small and rubbery. A companion ordered a breakfast burger done medium and was served one way overdone. There was no salt or pepper at the table. The waiter brought us a small disk of loose salt with one of those tiny spoons. Very cute. But challenging for many folks, especially seniors or children, to use without oversalting your eggs. The waitstaff was attentive but unfamiliar with the menu. Perhaps new to the brunch routine.
Somehow our party of four wound up with a bill for $90 (including tip) for a way disappointing experience. Someone in charge here needs to get a clue about how to put together a decent brunch experience.
