This is one of the first restaurants and bars to open on H street. They have reasonably priced tasty food and a good atmosphere. I enjoy coming here for brunch, lunch and happy hour on the weekdays.

First the down side. We went expecting a more sea-food intensive experience. Apparently they have changed. Pity. The name Argonaut would imply seafood. What we had was good. Not fantastic, with one big exception. The Mac-n-Cheese was perfection! I'm a huge macaroni and cheese fanatic...More

My title may be a little misleading for some. When I say this is the best brunch in the city, I don't mean that it's the highest quality cuisine you'll ever eat or the neatest building. It is, however, great for that brunch place you...More
