Red Apron Penn Quarter - quick take

Prompted by the WCP's "24 hours of eating" story, made our way to Red Apron's D St NW location for lunch. Ordered a porkstrami, a breakfast sandwich, and a mix of farro salad and pickled radish.

Very impressive food turnout. The porkstrami is covered in a good sauerkraut and the pastrami-style pork shines. Very heavy but the flavors work anyway. The breakfast sandwich (southern comfort, they have several) is served on an italian muffin of sorts, with thin slices of tasso ham and a smoked pimiento cheese spread. The egg was perfectly fried and the tasso was fantastic, though I could have done with a heavier shmear hand on the pimiento cheese. It's a deal at $5.50. Farro and radish were simple but well executed. The sharp acids help cut the fat of the sandwiches.

They also have picnic boxes at $28 that look very interesting, especially one with fried chicken and a honey hot sauce...

Most of the non-breakfast menu (including the porkstrami) is a carryover from the 2 other locations. Don't sleep on the french fries.
