In case you can’t tell, I’ve been heavy into the catch-up posting this week. This one’s from the Sunday before inauguration:
So Inauguration Weekend. I jokingly told someone that every black person in DC was in my neighborhood. As the weekend wore on, I realized it was pretty much true. At any rate, my lovely friend Jen happened to miraculously be in town from London for a wedding, so Ace (Jen’s former roommate) and I decided to do what the three of us do best- Eat. Ace and Jen scooped me up downtown (where I was buying boots!) and we headed off to the not-quite-as-new-now Matchbox on the Hill.
Let it never be said that brunch shouldn’t have appetizers.
We started with the cinnamon rolls- pillowy, delicious, and far better than the disastrous ones I attempted a few weeks ago. Plus there were six of them, which worked out perfectly.
Then we moved on to actual food- spicy meatball pizza (it may or may not be impossible for me to order anything else at Matchbox), stuffed French toast, and cast iron chorizo and eggs.
I’ve never been disappointed by Matchbox (they have PBR tallboys!), but this breakfast was exceptional. But I’m probably just saying that because I love spicy meatball pizza.
