The March Hit List, Lunch Edition: HalfSmoke, Chiko, Panda Gourmet, and More


We’re not out of the woods yet, but glimmers of spring have made an appearance. On the home front, maybe you’ve grown tired of loading and unloading the dishwasher nonstop, or you’ve set off the smoke alarm one too many times searing meat, or that TikTok pasta made you feel sort of gross?

If so, you might consider enjoying a sunny afternoon lunch with a proper burger at Duke’s Grocery, or lean into weekday brunch with French dip poutine from Unconventional Diner, or pick up some dan dan noodles and lamb skewers from Panda Gourmet for a picnic at the National Arboretum. All here on your March Hit List, where lunch is what’s on our minds.
