Little Beast is one of the cutest places in the Washington DC area. They didn’t stop at the logo, and you can find cute little monsters all over the restaurant. They get 5 NOMs just for all the adorable things (without going overboard). Plus, their outdoor sitting area made for a great first Little Beast brunch experience. It almost feels like the Nomster might have some competition in town!
Breakfast Pizza (6/5 NOMs)
Look at this beautiful white sauce breakfast pizza. With one bite it became one of our favorites from the Little Beast menu. Their menu has several other pizzas, but at brunch, the eggs are a must. It was a perfect combination of bechamel (the white sauce) with two kinds of cheese (ricotta and mozzarella), caramelized onions, bacon, and two sunny-side-up eggs. The runny yolk pushed this great dish to perfection. It was a pretty good price for such a good pizza too, at $16. While we ordered it as a sharing dish, I can see myself eating it all on my own. Stay away from my breakfast pizza, or I’ll bite you!
Croque Madame (5/5 NOMs)
Croque Madame combines two of our favorite things; breakfast, and sandwiches. At Little Beast, they combine to create a perfect brunch dish. This is a must-order dish for cheese lovers, with a great combination of Gruyere and bechamel sauce, which is the same white sauce that goes on their pizza. Cut right through those multiple layers of ham and turkey, combined with cheesy goodness and perfectly runny yolk. That’s how you make an utterly delicious brunch dish. Not to mention the home fries, which were absolutely were on point. For brunch, the $15 price is pretty reasonable for such a tasty meal, which includes an extra $1 to make it “madame”.
Fried Chicken Sandwich (4/5 NOMs)
Nothing says “perfect addition” for brunch drinkies like a Fried Chicken Sandwich at Little Beast. This one dish is packing so many nomnom things into one bite! Fried chicken thigh, bacon, a thick piece of melted cheddar, spicy slaw, all topped with a perfectly runny egg. It’s a good thing we are no strangers to eating huge items, or else we would need to unhinge our jaw for this big boy!
Bloody Marry (4/5 NOMs)
There is no such thing as brunch without a little alcohol, especially your standard Bloody Maries and Mimosas. A breakfast drink like this hits the spot just right. Just like all the dishes, these drinks look great, and we couldn’t wait to get drunk on it.
