Blacksalt


This beautiful fall morning found Natalie and I making our way just down the street to Blacksalt for their Sunday Morning Jazz Brunch.

Blacksalt reminds me of a fusion of different restaurants I've been to across the map: The Greenery, Bloom, and The Bluewater Cafe.

Eating there this morning listening to live jazz was the most comfortable moment I've had here in DC as of yet. The mix of hardwood chairs, giant skylight over the bar, and delicious brunch gave the experience an overwhelming sense of familiarity... a remembrance of Sunday mornings spent at The Greenery.

Both our dishes were worthy of note- Nat had the Three Egg Omelet with Blue Crab, Local Squash, and Aged Gouda while I had Louisiana Poached Eggs with Crawfish, Tasso, Cornbread, and Cayenne Hollandaise. We also ordered pumpkin muffins which were perfect for the fall morning but could have been sweeter.

Highly recommend a Blacksalt brunch sometime.

sounds like a nice comfortable place,i think you are spoiled when it comes to sweets.

I know you would probably add sugar to your muffins!! I can't imagine where you got that sweet tooth!! I'd love to go there!!

Now I'm hungry. Which is impressive considering I hate seafood.

My blog should be back up and running soon. I've just been too busy to think about it these last weeks.

Talk to you later!
