Team Lunch Review: Etch

Team Lunch Review: Etch

We have been so busy that it’s already May before we have gotten around to writing our review for our April lunch! Since our last review we have had about thirteen contracts come together, so we are on track to have an awesome year. We have also had a bit more work than usual because Kat is going to be moving to Washington DC in just a few weeks, so we are working to juggle what can be done remotely and what tasks need to be handed off!

As far as restaurant choices go, I would definitely go back. And as far as conversation goes, while I am sad to see Kat go, I am thrilled for her and Trip and wish them the best in our nations’s capital. CARRIE (the picky one) had – you guessed it – the plain Burger: Etch was not my favorite but it was far from my least favorite.  I love the location and atmosphere of the restaurant.  I can’t help myself – I ordered a burger yet again.
