There is a University Club on campus for faculty and staff to eat. They moved to a new space last spring and it’s pretty swanky. It’s all you care to eat for $11.75 + tax, which isn’t terrible considering overall on-campus dining prices and off-campus DC restaurants. Plus the people watching is SUPERB – it’s always a who’s who of campus folks.
I got lunch with my friend J who is an Assistant Dean of one of the academic colleges. He’s been a great friend and colleague (especially over the summer during my near breakdown) so it was nice to grab an hour together.
The menu was on point. So many veggie options – on top of a salad bar, two soups (I got butternut squash), and cut fruit. I gotta say the soup was wonderful, but to my shock, the real VIP was the Braised Cabbage. It had other veggies in it too. Does anyone have a braised cabbage recipe?
