Where to Brunch This Weekend: Las Gemelas Cocina Mexicana
Las Gemelas Cocina Mexicana is a locally owned and operated Mexican restaurant serving up elevated Mexican brunch, lunch, and dinner fare near NoMa. For dinner, you’ll definitely want to make a reservation because it gets busy with its newfound popularity (POTUS dined here on Cinco de Mayo)! The fare at dinner is very much seafood-centric, unlike the brunch or lunch menu. You’ll find plates like salmon crudo with pickled chayote, shrimp cocktail, and mussels with chipotle cream broth.
If you’re more of a brunch lover, head there earlier and indulge! Try the chilaquiles with tomatillo salsa topped with sunny eggs, or opt for the torta de tocino, which is essentially a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich served with hash browns and a spicy habanero salsa. They also make a mean aguacate tostado (avocado toast)!
