Everybody must be hungry, because this week’s top story was about an all-day brunch restaurant in Del Ray.

Matt & Tony’s All Day Kitchen + Bar (1501 Mount Vernon Avenue) was the sole Alexandria location in Washingtonian’s list of best brunch spots. The restaurant opened last year with a dog-friendly patio and specializes in all-day brunch.

Washingtonian said that the family-friendly restaurant offers “cheffed-up versions of brunch classics all day long.”

“Crisp-edged masa pancakes come with a mole syrup, and scallion-­cheddar biscuits are smothered in chicken-chorizo gravy,” Washingtonian said in the listing. “Bloody Marys are available three ways, including a green version with poblano-infused tequila and wasabi.”
