Nommin’ Out: Shaws Tavern

Enter the Shaw Burger- one of the finest nommables I’ve consumed thus far in DC.  My friends and I have made Shaws Tavern on 6th and Florida Ave a Sunday brunch habit- it’s not fussy, you can always get seated (granted for parties of 8 or less), the service is super friendly, and they have a $12 bottomless mimosa special that one expects at a great brunch spot.  While the entire menu is impressive, the burger is by far the best thing on it.  I get this bad boy almost every time.  Comes with fries (ask for truffled for an extra couple buckaroos) or a salad (Caesar pictured).  You have a plethora of cheese options, including cheddar (pictured) and goat.  Then there’s AVOCADO, sauteed onions, jalapenos, bacon, mushrooms, and/or a fried green tomato.  I like my toppings a plenty, so granted this adds up.  That’s why I also try and go on Tuesdays when burgers are HALF OFF from 5-11pm.  And that’s just their Tuesday event.  

Shaws Tavern has a calendar on their page that boasts Soul Sundays, Trivia Mondays, Piano Bar Wednesdays, and Jazz Thursdays.   On Wednesday and Thursday nights, sit at the bar, chat with the knowledgeable and amicable bartenders, order a specialty drink and let the tunes sooth you.  For all you gin drinkers out there, I highly recommend the Lime Aviation, which features a splash of Creme de Violette for a twist.  I might be the chick on the stool next to you.
