Busboys and Poets: The Artist Enclave

Eateries of every sort are scattered throughout the popular U Street Corridor. Virtually anyone can find something to suit their own taste. But one famous hangout does more then simply provide grub for it's guests; it provides a lively outlet for artists and musicians alike.

Busboys and Poets, located on the corner of 14th Street and V Street, NW (about one block up from U Street) melds the best of the eclectic U St. crowd into one hot, ultra urban spot.

For the artist, there are nightly shows from local talent, weekly discussions with authors and filmmakers, and much more. Meat lovers can enjoy their all-American burgers starting at $7.50, roasted turkey sandwiches, and beef chili soup. Vegans, don't feel left out! Busboys offers a variety of vegan including a vegan pepperoni calzone for $10.95, and $5.95 Brushetta with chopped tomato, fresh basil and olive oil.

For the District's intellectual crowd, Busboys offers a host of events geared toward the socially conscience.
