Duke's Grocery

A Taste of East London in DC

If you're looking for a casual neighborhood joint with scratch-made food, cold drinks and a cozy atmosphere, you need to go to Duke's Grocery immediately.  Duke's is inspired by sleek avant-garde restaurants and greasy hole in the wall spots in East London -- my two favorite things.  The chalkboard menu is updated regularly depending on what is seasonally available and fresh, and the ingredients are sourced from local purveyors and centered around sustainability.  Seriously, I have died and gone to foodie heaven.
