After running the Army 10 Miler, my boyfriend took me to brunch at Overwood in Old Town. It's owned by the same people as Boulevard Woodgrill and Faccia Luna. It's menu is diverse, the space was nice and bright and at brunch the place was teeming with families with peacefully-sleeping babies. http://theoverwood.com/New_Overwood/Overwood_in_Alexandria.html
Bloody Mary ($5.75)
I'm not sure why there was a spiced shrimp garnish, but this is a nice and spicy rendition.
Eggs Florentine ($10.50)
Poached eggs on a bed of spinach and English Muffin and a light hollandaise sauce. The potatoes were spicy and a nice contrast.
Charleston Frittata ($11)
3-eggs with andouille sausage, crawfish, peppers, roast potatoes and cheddar cheese.
Asiago grits ($5)
Creamy and good.
We had read some reviews that said the service was not spectacular, especially in the evening, but we had a very pleasant experience. The burger looked nice and juicy, our server was efficient, and it was a nice treat after the race.
