I planned a brewery tour for the day and to fuel up beforehand, Keith wanted to check out this restaurant in his old college neighborhood. The metro line is a bit out of our way, so we took a Lyft there. The interior is very reminiscent of Matchbox with exposed air ducts, a skylight, and lots of reclaimed wood.
We were hoping to order lunch, but only the brunch menu was available. I ordered the Tony's Breakfast Club - French Toast stuffed with Applewood bacon, Taylor Pork Roll, cheddar eggs, and drizzled with Dijon maple syrup. It was served with a side of mixed greens. It tasted like a Monte Cristo sandwich and was a nice combination of salty and sweet.
Keith ordered the Colonel Burger made with certified Angus beef, pickled onions, Tillamook Cheddar, Applewood smoked bacon on a brioche bun. It was served with two large tempura onion rings. Th burger was decent and overall provided a nice foundation to a day full of beer.
BY the time we had finished our meal, the place had filled up with young groups and families. Brookland's Finest seemed to be a popular neighborhood joint, but we would not make our way out here regularly.
