We grab our third crab breakfast item of the day in the Neptune Benedict at Busboys and it is quite impressive. This was another place where the food was getting the short shrift from the Yelper set. I was pretty happy with the eggs on the benedict; they were so nice I mentioned them thrice. Actually, don’t bother clicking that link, this was kind of a forgettable stop along the way because we didn’t get as much time to just shoot the bull about the food and the atmosphere because we were meeting with Andy (owner of Busboys) at 9:00 AM. I was freaking out about time for a lot of this stop, but it was cool. He asked me if I was some kind of Anthony Bourdain, since he’d been here a year prior to my visit. I don’t think I measured up to Anthony in viewership (or height; he’s 6’4″) but our conversation was fun. So we had to do the interview over there this morning during 24 in 24. It was only half an hour, Andy seemed like he was going to be a punctual chap, and we only had a few blocks to go to the next stop, so I tried to pack it in. I don’t like doing it this way, but that’s the way it played out, and we’ll make do with the footage we shot.
Busboys and Poets wins the Chillest Waitstaff award for 24 in 24: DC. I was in there three times during the week to hang out and grab wifi and the employees were always relaxed and having fun.
