We've had a super busy September so far at the office, with high level visits every week including the new company president. Japanese companies are interesting in the manner they rotate their Japanese staff into subsidiaries overseas. After two years, our boss is returning home and we have a new office GM.
Since it was my coworker's birthday on Friday, I took her out to celebrate for lunch. We walked over to Foggy Bottom and scored a table by the window. The restaurant is very open and can become pretty loud. I definitely recommend asking for one of the booths by the window if they're available.
Pretzel Bread with beer-mustard-butter ($2)
A smidge greasy, the bread was a great way to start off.
Arugula Salad with Pimento cheese fritters, chicken cracklings ($10)
with a side of macaroni and cheese ($5). The Mac and Cheese was super creamy.
Seafood Cobb Salad ($18)
with avocado, Benton bacon, sundried tomatoes, radish, chopped egg, blue cheese, cold salmon, shrimp, and lump crab meat.
The bacon was super fatty, and I would have preferred a crispier, less fatty bacon.
The service was very good, observant without being intrusive. Our waitress read our table pretty well, and I bet does well taking care of patrons conducting business lunches. Next time I might try one of their flatbread s and a salad, or perhaps the mussels. The crabcake sandwich here is a pretty nice rendition.
