Ripple is an award-winning Cleveland Park restaurant that's committed to serving local, seasonal, and sustainable food in an elegant and upscale atmosphere—without the fuss. You might start your meal with crostini topped with house-made ricotta, shaved baby fennel, and smoked trout roe. Next, consider moving on to a main dish of glazed duck breast served atop a pumpkin puree, with kale sprouts and a poached pear. Add a side of sauteed wild mushrooms or crispy Brussels sprouts, and you've got yourself a hearty, yet innovative meal.
Ripple is also a brunch hotspot, so next time you're seeking a leisurely weekend meal near Cathedral Commons, consider heading on over. Regulars say everything on the brunch menu is tasty, but they particularly recommend the house-made pastrami hash, served with home fries and sunny-side-up eggs and, if you request it, an order of bottomless mimosas.
