3000 Connecticut Ave, NW
Hard to tell with all that snow but the Zoo Bar has now papered over their windows – changes are coming. Stay tuned.
Update from a press release:
“The partnership group behind Dupont Circle gastropub Duke’s Grocery will open a second location, Duke’s Counter, directly across from the National Zoo at 3000 Connecticut Avenue NW. The new restaurant and bar will serve the same dishes and cocktails found at the current location, with new twists and more options. Duke’s Counter will benefit from a larger kitchen and more draught beer lines.
Fans of Duke’s Grocery who visit Duke’s Counter will recognize a robust brunch menu, active bar scene, creative sandwiches, sunny patio and of course the Proper Burger, while also looking forward to new items like fish and chips, wings, a kid’s menu and the potential for take away service. The East London-inspired menu will continue to offer seasonal salads, white truffle mac & cheese, curries and specials including Sunday Roast, lamb shanks, falafel with the works and salt beef.
