When you can’t decide whether you’re craving a cheeseburger, shrimp banh mi, or shakshuka, Duke’s Grocery is a savvy bet. Their fabled Proper Burger, is also available as a meatless Impossible patty, with the complete glow up of melted gouda, charred onion, sweet chili sauce & garlic aioli, rocket and dill pickles on a brioche bun. The chicken schnitzel Cubano also makes a compelling case for all things fried, smothered and toasted. Enjoy some temperate afternoon sun at lunch on their patio, preferably with a Pimm’s Cup. Or get cozy inside the historic Dupont rowhouse, with a duck confit and belgian waffle, with Bourbon Chai toddies at brunch. English Breakfast with Fullers on draught by the pint make for damn fine brunch as well.
Dining Status: Heated patio seating, and limited indoor seating are open for reservations, with lunch served at their Dupont location, and weekend brunch served at both Dupont and Foggy Bottom. Carryout and delivery is also available.
