Maketto adds Sunday dim sum to H Street brunch scene

Placeholder while article actions load

As if we needed another reason to hang around Maketto, the boutique/bar/eatery on H Street NE is throwing its stylish hat into the ring of a popular Washington tradition: brunch.

The restaurant announced today that chef and co-owner Erik Bruner-Yang will be dishing up dim sum brunch on Sundays beginning this weekend. Dim sum are traditional Chinese small plates, though Bruner-Yang's cuisine leans heavily on Taiwanese and Cambodian fare. His dishes, priced between $4 and $20, will be served a la carte.

Some of the dim sum items overlap with dishes already served at Maketto, including the Taiwanese fried chicken, Chinese doughnuts with soy milk, bao (leek or pork) and scallion pancakes. Intriguing additions include anchovy peanut brittle, beef rib hash with soft egg and a Taiwanese sticky rice wrap. Check out the full menu here.

Brunch at Maketto -- the restaurant made it into Post food critic Tom Sietsema's 2015 Fall Dining Guide -- will be first come, first served. If you're a planner, though, you may take solace in the fact that reservations are now available for dinner, but only if you pick up the phone to call.

Maketto, 1351 H St. NE. 202-838-9972. Brunch 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sundays.
