At this point in your career, you’re probably pretty set with your weekend scheduling. You grab a couple of beers on Saturday evening, and roll out of bed around noon on Sunday for a brunch with enough calories to last you until Tuesday (at least). If you’re an Instagrammer, you’ve probably already hit all of the hot spots in your city, leaving a void on your Sunday afternoon feed, when previously you’d be raking in the likes. I mean, how often can you post about the same bloodies and eggs benedict before losing all of your friends?
Thankfully, Whaley’s at Navy Yard is here to revamp brunch – not from the menu, but from a visual perspective, so be sure to pack your mobile charges. As of last weekend, Whaley’s is opening a rosé garden that you’ll definitely want to check out. Unlike the beer gardens you’re no doubt familiar with, you might mistake this new location for a Lilly pop-up event on first glance. Like our favorite summer beverage, everything – tables, chairs, flowers, umbrellas, and planters – is the perfect shade of millennial pink, minus a bit of greenery mixed in.
Very excited to share that we are opening the Rosé Garden, an outdoor bar with sweeping river views in the heart of @theyardsdc. The Rosé Garden will feature up to 10 different rosés, plus frozen drinks, high balls and ice cold beer. Chef Daniel Perron has created a special menu of snacks, including tuna 'nduja, shrimp cocktail and oysters on the half shell. The Rosé garden will be wrapped in tropical plants, with deco white metal tables and pink striped umbrellas. Can't wait to share the space with you in April!
The rosé garden will feature seafood from Whaley’s accompanied by an entire rosé menu (of course). Highball cocktails and piña coladas make a menu appearance, but your best bet is splitting a bottle of wine with the table to be the most on brand. If you do plan to show up for the opening this Saturday, close your OpenTable app and be prepared to wait since they’re not accepting reservations. You can also only bring five friends along, so please don’t get rowdy – this isn’t that kind of place. Obviously, I want in.
If you go to brunch for the chicken and waffles and bottomless mimosas (hi), you may want to give this restaurant a second thought because there are only five food offerings. The cheapest of the five is a plate of marinated asparagus for the low price of $11, so you may want to pre-game with some McGriddles first if you’re predisposed to getting hangry. Otherwise, break out your seersucker and enjoy this (photo) opportunity of a lifetime..
