We got into the restaurant pretty quickly considering we didn't have a reservation and we even grabbed seats at the chef's table. Lauri wanted the donuts and they sounded really interesting - toffee bacon, lemon-poppy glazed and bittersweet chocolate. Good but not the best.
One of the prep chefs worked on the flatbreads directly in front of us. We chatted with him a bit but he obviously enjoyed the position so he could overhear conversations. I would be the same.
Out of love for Lauri and Derek, I didn't tell them of my dislike for gorgonzola until after we ordered the flatbread with figs and prosciutto. I wanted to see if I still really didn't like it and I don't. But it was good if you like that kind of cheese.
This was the real winner. The fried chicken was delicious. I'd come back for this.
And I was happy with the egg sandwich with sausage and cheese. There is nothing better for breakfast than a good egg sandwich.
After brunch, Lauri caught her bus back to NYC and I watched DC completely shut down that week.
