Thanks to Andy for sending: “We’ve lost a lot of good spots in Penn Quarter but this one really stings. Hopefully “temporarily suspended” is accurate and it’s not gone for good.”
Red Apron’s website says:
“While Red Apron is currently open for counter service in DC & Merrifield, we are also offering our goods online for delivery at Neighborhood Provisions, where a number of our team members are currently working.
Neighborhood Provisions was designed to help our customers get through the crisis in culinary and beverage style while providing employment and support to our staff and to the staffs of the other independent restaurants of the Neighborhood Restaurant Group. In addition to offering a great selection of meals for immediate delivery, Neighborhood Provisions also has an extensive Pantry offering, which includes everything you’d want to stock your fridge or cupboard with–including craft beer, wine and cocktails–plus those pandemic-specific must-haves that have become hard to find (e.g., hand sanitizer). Neighborhood Provisions is also doing everything we can think of to support our community–supporting local makers by offering their products through our partnership with Shop Made in DC; providing meals to our front-line health care workers, who are laying it on the line for us every day; and delivering food to those who are both economically vulnerable and Covid19 positive–truly the hardest hit among us.”
