Busboys & Poets, DC #4

I've written about Busboys & Poets three times now, mostly because I live fairly close to one. It's my go-to for when I want a good, quick meal, assuming there is no wait. This place is super popular because the food and drinks are really good and appropriately priced. We only had 45 minutes to eat, early on a Thursday night so we ran over to Busboys to see if we could get seated. And sure enough, we could.

I wasn't all that hungry this time so I decided try one of their salads for once.  This past season they added a new vegan salad to their menu -- the Vegan Cobb Salad. It was so good. It was just a heap of arugula with crispy tofu, blackened tempeh, avocado, tomatoes, and cashews tossed in a hemp vinaigrette. The tempeh and tofu really brought the salad to life!  And it was served with pita triangles. It was really good.

I also ordered a new mixed drink off their cocktails menu. They just changed many of the cocktails so I decided to try something new -- the Proper Kappa. I'm not sure what exactly is in this, but it lists elderflower liqueur, pomegranate, and lime. It was a light drink, slightly fruity drink.

The service was okay, the food was great, and the drink was pretty good. I love this place as a meeting spot for friends.
