Sequoia - Washington, D.C.

By: Kellie K. Speed

There is no better place in Washington, DC to catch a glimpse of the amazing sunrise or sunset (for that matter) than Sequoia.  The restaurant offers spectacular views of the Potomac River, Virginia skyline and Kennedy Center. 
As the sun dips below the spires of Georgetown University, inside Sequoia comes to life offering an extensive array of contemporary American fare at reasonable prices.  During the warmer months, the restaurant’s expansive patio dining and riverfront bar become the place to see and be seen.
Sunday brunch at the restaurant is extremely popular so be sure to call ahead and request a reservation in advance.  The popular hot spot during the summer months is very popular with the after-work crowd and those looking for a drink.  
Step inside for dinner and you will be treated to a very nice surprise.  We stopped in for brunch one Sunday morning and sampled the tasty scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, served with sweet onions and chives and a side of hash browns and fresh fruit.  The crabmeat and Monterey Jack cheese omelette was equally hailed accompanied by a side of fresh fruits and berries. 
While brunch here did not consist of an all-you-can-eat feast, the expertly prepared menu offered something for everyone.  From granola and fruit, French toast, Sequoia eggs benedict, an egg white omelette, Sequoia pancakes with caramelized bananas and toasted walnuts to a brie omelette, those looking for a hearty breakfast or healthy option could easily indulge.  Seafood entrees included a salmon special, yellowfin tuna steak, and pan seared sea bass.  Specials are served with salad and come with dessert as well.  
If you are looking for lighter fare, the smoked turkey wrap sounded appealing and the grilled spiced shrimp sandwich was ordered at a table nearby. There were also some surprising treats on the menu – Tandoori style chicken kabob and a crabcake sandwich.  Entrée salads included pan seared filet tip salad and a traditional Caesar.  Pastas offered a mixed wild mushroom ravioli and penne pasta with roasted chicken.  
General Manager Kyle Carnegie informed us the restaurant often plays host to Washington’s most notable citizens.  Whether you come for the view, the scenery or most importantly, the food, Sequoia is sure to provide an experience you won’t soon forget.
