Boom! Duke’s Counter from the owners of Duke Grocery in Dupont soft opened on Friday across the street from the Zoo. It was certainly sad to lose Zoo Bar but Duke’s Counter is looking like a worthy replacement. This is a huge score for the Woodley/Cleveland Park crowd. Hell this is a huge score for those with little kids who go to the Zoo a couple times a month/week. Seriously, while the space was still being set up when I stopped by Sunday morning – you can get a good idea of how awesome the space turned out. The dark interior from the Zoo Bar days (good for Blues and Jazz) have been completely brightened:
