Busboys and Poets, 14th & V

Thank you to Bill Jones, Jr. for an excellent recommendation. I walked into the restaurant and knew immediately it was my kind of place. From the sofa seating area, to the blackboard menu, to my favorite Langston Hughes poem silk-screened on the back of servers’ shirts, to the delicious tofu scramble, to the cozy bookstore (where I purchased my breakfast read, the Utne Reader, and after breakfast snagged a copy of Alice Walker’s The World Will Follow Joy: Turning Madness into Flowers), Busboys and Poets was all that, and then some.

Back to the hotel via the Metro – Green Line to Gallery Place, transfer to the Red Line to Metro Center.

    • Thanks, Rita. I’m so busy with everything that I barely have time to check in or post, let alone visit all the blogs I follow. I hope they all forgive me. I’ll be doing a lot of catching up when I’m back.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
