Let’s carry the rooftop theme to brunch at the Ivy City Smokehouse.
Lucky are the eaters who make their way to this unique seafood smokehouse. Inside the warehouse-like space, a daily market and state-of-the-art smokehouse reside at street level. Above this, find a tavern-like restaurant with a large, open-air rooftop. The fish is fresh, the staff is super-friendly and the vibe is irresistible with occasional live music. A platter offers a broad sample of artisanal smoked goodies, like Indian candy (a sweet, salty and almost jerk-like smoked salmon); glistening, coral-pink smoked salmon; pepper-smoked salmon embedded with crushed peppercorns; and an impossibly good whitefish salad. Don't miss the chalkboard's daily specials, like tender crab cake so flaky and minimally dressed you'll think you're seaside.
