The Rockfish Breakfast – Market Lunch

Bluebuck pancakes - Market Lunch
With 2 eggs, spicy grits, and toast. $13.95
Market Lunch, Washington DC

This plate was delicious! I just wish that the piece of rockfish was a little bigger. The grits had a little kick to them which was lovely. This place gets packed, but I was able to snag a corner of the communal table right in front.

Bluebuck pancakes – Market Lunch

Bluebuck pancakes - Market Lunch
Blueberry buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup and butter. $6.25
Market Lunch, Washington DC

These pancakes were pretty good but I was expecting more from all the great reviews I’ve read about them. I actually think mine were too thick and undercooked.

Crabcake and rockfish combo – Market Lunch

Crabcake and rockfish combo - Market Lunch
With fried green tomatoes, green chile cheese grits, and bread. $21.80
Market Lunch, Washington DC

This seafood combo plate was good, but I don’t know if it was worth the price. I ordered it with the fried rock fish upgrade and it was fine (albeit greasy), but I don’t know if it would have tasted substantially better than the normal fried fish. I did love the grits, but I should have scooped the butter out before all of it melted on top. I wasn’t impressed with the crab cake. It was too dense for me and a bit greasy. The fried green tomatoes were great though.
