Brunch at Logan Tavern

Yesterday was the annual Cherry Blossom Ten-Miler race in downtown DC. I ran it with a friend and was surprised to find I actually felt pretty great. I had no injuries or major cramps and I didn't even feel the need to pass out at the end. What I did need to do afterwards was eat. Having been twice before, I knew Logan Tavern would be the right place to refuel.

We managed to get in early and get a table which is rare- they fill up quickly. I immediately looked at the brunch drink menu which has an impressive variety of Bloody Mary's and mimosas. I usually order a Bloody Mary, even though I don't like them. I just WANT to like them. This time I decided to go straight for a drink I knew I would finish- champagne with pear nectar. It was crisp with fresh pear flavor and effervescent little bubbles. Perfect for those sore muscles!

For sustenance of the non-liquid variety, I went for an omelet filled with asparagus, red pepper and cheddar as well as a side of turkey sausage. The omelet looked dauntingly huge sitting next to a pile of hash browns and completely covering the plate. It was no match for me, however. I nearly licked the plate clean. Second victory of the day!

Logan Tavern has great food, friendly service (thank you for carding me, Mr. Waiter), and a casual and comforting atmosphere. I look forward to my next visit...perhaps next Sunday.
