  • dLeña is serving July 5 brunch for those looking to continue the celebrations after the fireworks! The all-you-can-eat-and-drink brunch includes tacos, egg dishes, tuna ceviche, shrimp enchiladas, and more, all washed down with mimosas or Bloody Mary’s.

Mélange also announced their new hand-spun milkshakes and Washingtonian Magazine is raving about them! To kick off the summer, Chef Elias Taddesse has introduced a new line of milkshakes that are inspired by the desserts he made as a chef at the storied Caviar Russe restaurant in Manhattan and are infused with flavors inspired by his memories of Ethiopia. Chef gets creative with flavors like toast (actually made with toasted bread), blending the frozen dessert into thick milkshakes inspired by peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
