Forgot About Easter Brunch? We Can Save Your Sunday Plans

So, it's a holiday weekend, and you forgot to make a brunch reservation. Oops! We feel your pain, but Easter brunch is pretty much the best breakfast of the year — plus, it's the perfect time to debut the season's pastel trend. (You know, in case you've been hesitant about breaking out those mint-green cigarette pants).

Lucky for you and your visiting fam (and those pants), there are some procrastinator-friendly dining spots in the DMV that welcome walk-ins. We hunted down some alternatives to the traditional sit-down brunch, and found some great dine-'n'-dash spots that will have space (and tasty dishes) to spare come Sunday.
For Italian brunch pizza and outdoor seating, check out Potenza, which is situated near the White House but blissfully crowd-free on weekends.
Where: 1430 H Street NW; 202-638-4444.
They serve pina colada mimosas — you shouldn't need another reason to head to Oyamel.
Where: 401 7th Street NW; 202-628-1005.
If you're up for a drive and some delectable crabcakes and peach cobbler, head to kitschy Baltimore resto The Roost, for comfort food at its best.
Where: 217 E. Baltimore Street, Baltimore; 301-230-2626
There will probably be a line, but it's worth it — old-school staple Market Lunch at Eastern Market dishes out fresh fish sandwiches and other casual fare in a cafeteria-like setting, which is perfect for fuss-free dining types.
Where: 225 7th Street SE; 202-547-8444.

Last but not least, our favorite go-to in for a delicious, no-hassle gourmet meal is Dean & Deluca in Georgetown, for the best baklava and leg of lamb, plus low-key outdoor seating and access to shopping (obvi).
Where: 3276 M Street NW; 202-342-2500.
