Okay, I know. Usually in this feature we talk about some fantastic new place we just tried, some culinary delights we had heretofore not considered, and here I am talking about Luna Grill and Diner. And really, is there anyone left in DC who hasn’t eaten at Luna?
(If you are in DC and haven’t yet gone to Luna, I don’t know what’s wrong with you. Go now. Don’t worry, you can finish reading We Love DC when you get back; we’ll still be here.)
It’s not that the food at Luna is so special- in most cases, it’s nothing I couldn’t make at home just as well. But sometimes, the omelette tastes better when someone else makes it. And the food is so inexpensive that you don’t feel bad about letting someone else clean up.
This lovefest was brought on when Tom and I recently spent a week in Seattle, where apparently people do not believe in breakfast. Oh sure, you can find a coffeeshop on every corner and two in between, but we wandered for an hour before finding a restaurant open for breakfast- and it was in a hotel. Who ARE these people who neglect the most important meal of the day?
Every city needs a Luna- a diner where they serve breakfast all day, make a damn fine grilled cheese sandwich, and don’t charge you an arm and a leg for it. I particularly recommend the veggie nachos- multicolored tortilla chips make me disproportionately happy, but the veggie chili could convert even the most adamant of carnivores.
Actually, now that I think about it, I feel the need for a breakfast burrito coming on…
