Winter Comfort Food

WASHINGTON, DC: Biscuits 'n' Gravy

America is overpopulated with subpar or merely adequate biscuits, which is why discovery of excellent ones is cause for real joy. In the cold morning hours, at the counter or in a booth at the Florida Avenue Grill, they are served two by two, warm enough so you can only gingerly grab top and bottom of one to pull it into halves, all the better for the fleecy interior to absorb a cascade of spicy, sausage-crowded, cream-thick gravy. A pair is adequate breakfast for modest appetites, and makes an awesome side dish with fried pork chops and sweet stewed apples. Long a favorite destination for Washington's power brokers as well as blue-collar folk, and just a quick cab ride from Capitol Hill, the Grill's walls are plastered with 8 x 10 photos of officeholders and sports stars who all are fans of the landmark soul-food diner.
