Duke’s Grocery Opens Today at 11am in Dupont, Have a Look Inside

1513 17th Street, NW

Last week we noted Duke’s Grocery was coming soon to the former Cafe Green space on 17th Street. Well, today’s the day. I stopped in yesterday for some preview photos and the space does not disappoint.

From a press release:

“Duke’s Grocery is a social market and pub located in the heart of Dupont Circle’s 17th Street community. Taking inspiration and cues from old European counters, especially those in East London, Duke’s will serve a seasonal market menu featuring scratch made sandwiches, salads and sides.

Chef-Partner Alex McCoy’s kitchen will emphasize local ingredients and house made products. The quality-driven market menu features scratch made sandwiches, comfort sides and seasonal salads with fresh produce from Potomac Farm Market. We are proud to feature fresh produce from Potomac Farm Market, craft beers from local breweries and fresh bread from Lyon Bakery and Georgetown Bagelry.

The beverage program will feature new spins on classic cocktails. The Perfect Storm, our version of a dark and stormy, features house made ginger-chili syrup; the Shoreditch Fizz, is made with citron vodka, prosecco, limoncello, anisette, fresh lemon and basil.

Guests can grab fresh fruit and vegetables from the Grocery Table, curated by Potomac Farm Market, which will also provide produce for McCoy’s kitchen.

Italian espresso drinks will come courtesy of a vintage ECM machine and a full English Breakfast, along with house made pastries and cakes, will soon be available all day.


Monday – Thursday: 11:00AM to 2:00AM
Friday – Saturday: 11:00AM to 3:00AM
Sunday: 11:00AM to 2:00AM

Breakfast and Brunch: Coming soon.”

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
