National Portrait Restaurant


I took myself to lunch at the National Portrait Gallery. Roughly $30 for two apps and a small bottle of water, ouch, but as a dear, departed friend used to say, what you are really paying for is the real estate. This was the view from my table. Nelson’s column, Big Ben, not bad.

What a great reminder that a space isn’t all about the paint color or the floor finish. Sometimes it’s about what drew you up there in the first place.
