Busboys and Poets

100% love it
Dining, dialogue, diversity
Busboys and Poets combines a restaurant, bookstore, and ritual space for the sharing of ideas. Inspired by poet Langston Hughes, this spot draws a funky and diverse crowd and serves up American-style comfort foods like homemade pizzas, meatloaf, hot paninis, and a lot more.

      Gay friendly, diverse place to eat.
      I love this place. It's good food and pretty cheap (for DC standards). Great place to check out if you are socially aware like many people in DC. Check their website for events related to book signings, musical acts,special speakers and poetry readings all while you are eating. Wide selection of food from around the world with standard American food also. Trendy decor and trendy staff who are politically aware give you an international experience in Washington.
