Maple begins Saturday brunch, expansion will open soon

Maple, the well-reviewed Italian restaurant and wine bar on the 11th Street strip, has a couple of good news announcements: they're beginning Saturday brunch starting this Saturday, complete with a free mimosa on the 2nd before noon, and also about to open their expansion.

If you recall, the expansion was into the old Columbia Heights Coffee space (RIP). They'll also be opening at 10am on Sundays, an hour earlier than they used to open.

The expansion basically doubles their space -- it was tight before. The spot gets good reviews on Yelp, 4 stars from 119 reviews.

Here's their press release.
Maple: Saturday Brunch Launches This Week; Expansion ImminentThe first mimosa is on us on Aug. 2 before noon.

Maple’s Saturday brunch begins Aug. 2, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. To celebrate the expanded brunch, those joining us before noon this Saturday can enjoy a complimentary mimosa with their meals. We will also open at 10 a.m. on Sundays, an hour earlier than usual.

The revamped menu includes baccala potato cakes (panko-crusted cod and potato cakes served with sunny-side-up eggs and a mixed green salad), Brioche French toast with blackberry compote and whipped mascarpone cream, and short-rib hash, inspired by our popular short-rib panino.

We're also putting the finishing touches on our expanded space, which will more than double our current seating capacity. We expect to open the new back patio, with seating for 34, within two weeks. The opening of our expanded indoor dining space will follow, with seating for 24 plus an upstairs 20-seat private dining room with a balcony overlooking the back patio.

I've done Maple brunch before (dunno if they only did it on Sunday or what) and it was FANTASTIC. I got their special (a prosciutto hash with home fries and an egg on top) and it was amazing. The others in my party also enjoyed their entrees as well. Definitely worth checking out as a brunch option on the 11th St. corridor; you won't be sorry.
