Busboys and Poets Restaurant Review

: DC entrepreneur Andy Shallal is noted for his four hangouts known as Busboys and Poets. The Busboys brand and its laid-back setting with books, ample comfortable seating, regular entertainment and offbeat food attract a whole range of folks who want to dine, chat, and more. The first site, opposite his Eatonville restaurant on the U St. Corridor, set the tone, and the Mt. Vernon branch, which has an outdoor terrace, re-creates what DCers like: the ultimate in casual eating and greeting.
