Gadsby's Tavern, Alexandria, VA

By chance, we parked our car in front of Gadsby's Tavern
in Alexandria and decided to eat lunch here.  We were
attracted by the Colonial ice house which is preserved and visible
through a window under the building.
Look! Behind Len's shoulder is a portrait of George Washington,
who ate here.

The spelling is Colonial. The food itself is pretty modern.
Reuben sandwiches weren't on George Washington's menu for sure!
Before lunch, we were watching birds on the icy Potomac River.

I saw that first photo of Salmagundi and was ready to dive in right now! Looks like a great spot for lunch -- and in good company, too, I see!
