This weekend I had the pleasure of spending time with some very talented and intelligent young ladies (I’ll share more about them at a later time). We had a great time laughing and giggling as women often do and we went to Mulebone for brunch. I’ve been to this location before however it was not called Mulebone at the time. I was elated when my friend invited me out to see what the atmosphere was like now. Mulebone is located on 2121 14th Street NW if your in the DC Metropolitan area.
When I first walk into Mulebone I was greeted by a beautiful mural of who I can only guess is Zora Neale Hurston (I am not sure, if you know please share in the comment section below). Throughout the entire restaurant there are several murals and artwork. Mulebone has an eclectic and vintage atmosphere and a very relaxed vibe, which we all enjoyed. Our waitress was nice and it didn’t take long for us to be seated; reservations are available as well if you prefer not to wait.
The weather was unusually nice for a fall day so we decided to eat brunch on their outside patio which was quite nice, save for the bees which buzzed around the table. The brunch menu was not overwelming and had a great mixture of breakfast and lunch items. A few of the ladies ordered the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Skillet Pancake (not shown) it looked mighty delicious. I opted for the Mulebone Burger (shown above) which included garlic herb fries (the fries where a little too crispy for me but they were tasty). The burger was absolutely amazing! I would definitely order again; the onion and oxtail marmalade, pimento cheese, wholegrain mustard aioli really set it off.
Overall, I enjoyed great food, company and laughs at Mulebone and it’s going on my recommend list (this is not a paid advertisement, just my own thoughts and opinions lol). There are several items on the menu I would love to go back and try and if I do I will be sure to post an update. Have you been to Mulebone before? Share your experience below! Are there any places you recommend for me to try next, I’d love hear your thoughts.
