Waffles or street tacos, chilaquiles or French toast ... You won't have to choose with Palette 22's generous brunch deal. For $26.22 per person, you can choose whatever you want from the special brunch menu. Add on a custom-made (by you!) bloody mary, mimosa, or bellini for just $4.22 each with the bottomless brunch.

For $85 per person, choose from extravagant dishes and create your own three-course meal. Personally, I would go for the Beef Carpaccio, the grilled Branzino, and finish with the blueberry tart. You really can't go wrong with any of these innovative choices on the special menu.

Mark's Duck House

ADDRESS: 6184 Arlington Boulevard | Falls Church, VA
PHONE: (703) 532-2125

You want to get there early (10:30 or 11 a.m.) because this neighborhood favorite gets really crowded really quickly. Don't let the strip-mall atmosphere fool you – you're in for some of the best authentic dim sum and Cantonese-roasted meats in the area.

Just point and choose from the traditional dim sum carts, and don't even bother with a menu. The roast duck or suckling pig and a bowl of rice will round out any meal nicely.
