Don’t feel like waiting an hour for a dinner table at this Logan Circle tapas house? You can eat just as well during the day—and will find a much quieter scene. Sip on icy Slushitos—we especially like the watermelon-tequila version—and glasses of cold rosé as vintage cartoons play above the bar. Move on to a round of miniature pork-belly-and-pickled-pepper sandwiches served on a slate slab, soft scrambled eggs with mushrooms and goat cheese, or a cheeseburger laden with Manchego. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, look to the crusty country bread served with honey butter and a small bowl of flaky Maldon salt for sprinkling. Saturday and Sunday 11 to 2.
