A growing brunch scene has led to a few tempting gimmicks in and around DC. Virtue Feed and Grain—the massive Virginia tavern from husband-and-wife team Cathal and Meshelle Armstrong—hosts a monthly pajama brunch party and serves a fully loaded Irish breakfast with pork belly, bacon, ham and sausages.
