Saturday my wife had a craving for grilled cheese and tomato soup, so we ended up at Audubon Circle for the first time. I've known about it for years, but for whatever reason I've never gone in. The inside was a lot sleaker than you'd expect. The zebra wood cabinets and the stone counters give it a surprisingly hip feel. Crowd was also older than you'd expect in that neighborhood.
The aformentioned grilled cheese was just ok. The tomato soup was tremendous. The veggie dumplings were also really solid. The highlight of the evening was taking the pressed turkey sandwich and dipping it into the soup. The beer list was perfectly acceptable with local options like Portico and Notch, as well as macros like Guinness. One thing that stands out is that it felt like a tremendous value - solid food, reasonable prices, nice service. We will definitely be back at some point. Have any other Hounds been in recently?
