PassionFish Bethesda Joins the Bottomless Brunch Scene

Looking for a new bottomless brunch in Bethesda? PassionFish, which opened last September, is now getting into the brunch game as well. They’re offering multi-course meals and optional bottomless beverages, along with a lineup of a la carte dishes and drinks.

The best bang for your buck is the two-course brunch for $19. Tack on bottomless mimosas, including a blood orange option, or Bloody Mary’s for an additional $11.

The two-course deal begins with a cinnamon and sugar Parker House style roll served with apple butter. Choose a starter and an entree, with a menu that can either veer light — granola and Greek yogurt parfait, smoothies, ceviche, roasted beet salad — or veer heavier, with Pain Perdue, crab and corn chowder, or Southern shrimp and grits.

Overall, the menu is seafood-centric and veers more towards lunch fare than breakfast fare. But there are enough options to go around.

If you’re not looking for seafood or lunch, you could grab the huevos rancheros or the fried chicken and waffle served with a pepper jelly maple syrup. There’s also a brunch quesadilla, fish tacos, smoked whitefish hash, and the house specialty Eggs Bar Harbor, a riff on a classic Benedict with poached eggs, Maine lobster and lemon chervil hollandaise.

Elsewhere, you can order from the raw bar or choose from an assortment of fresh catches of the day and sides. All of the starters and entrees from the two-course menu may also be ordered a la carte.

Additional brunch cocktails, normally $10 a pop, are priced at $5 each if you’re eating. The lineup includes Bellinis and Micheladas, along with the Ruby Slipper, made with ginger beer, strawberry puree, strawberry liqueur and Prosecco, the Breakfast Martini, with vanilla infused vodka, coffee liqueur and half and half, and the Drunken Fish, with orange and raspberry infused vodka, orange and cranberry juices, POM, and 7-Up.

The full dessert list is also available, if you’re still going strong. That includes that beastly beauty above, the chocolate mousse bomb, with chocolate mousse and praline doused with chocolate ganache and served with strawberry coulis and vanilla bean anglaise sauces.

PassionFish Bethesda’s brunch is served both Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 2:30pm. Visit them at for the full menu and more information.
