PoP Preview – Golden Brown Delicious (GBD) Fried Chicken and Doughnuts Opening Friday Morning

1323 Connecticut Ave, NW

GBD is located in the former Yola space at 1323 Connecticut Ave, NW.

Their facebook page announces:

“It’s official, gang! Friday we will be opening for breakfast & lunch starting at 8 AM. We can’t wait to see you!”


For those not familiar – their website says:

GBD (which gets its name from the restaurant kitchen shorthand for golden, brown and delicious) pairs the sweet and savory specialties of husband and wife team Chef Kyle Bailey & Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac the culinary masterminds behind Birch & Barley.

Located just south of Dupont Circle, GBD is a casual & lively neighborhood spot that pulls triple duty serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the morning, guests find a warm and inviting spot to enjoy one of MacIsaac’s fresh homemade doughnuts with a cup of coffee from premium craft roaster Mad Cap coffee. Ranging from the traditional fried-to-order vanilla glaze and classic coffee cake to the more gourmet grapefruit-campari old fashion and butterscotch, bourbon & bacon brioche doughnuts, GBD has a doughnut for every craving.

The fried chicken and menu of sides will take center stage at lunchtime, while the evening will see an expanded dinner menu as well as a snack menu with plenty of odds & ends for sharing. GBD will also serve as a destination for craft beer, fantastic wines and one-of-a-kind specialty punches in the evening.


Check out some of the doughnuts here.

I was able to attend a preview party last night and I can def. vouch for the D. Everything I tasted from the doughtnuts to the chicken to the drinks were delicious.
