I know the economy is tanking. But you don't expect that to affect brunch. My favorable review of Vinoteca, the wine bar on U Street, commented on their "ambitious" "tower of prosciutto di parma and gruyere cheese sandwiched between two thick slices of French toast and topped with a sunny side up egg and bacon" called the Monte Cristo. On a recent visit, however, they served a significantly downsized Monte Cristo. Not only was it smaller, but it was served without the bacon and maple syrup of the previous offering. After the jump, you be the judge. The first picture is the "downsized" sandwich and the other two pictures show the original ones.
