“On the heels of a successful launch into the market earlier this month [Ed. Note: in Georgetown Wisconsin and N Street, NW], Foxtrot is opening its second location in Washington, DC in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood at 650 Massachusetts Ave. NW.

Foxtrot’s shelves are stocked with items by some of the DC region’s favorite brands and artisans, including prepared meals by local chef Erik Bruner Yang and goods from beloved brands like Gordy’s Pickles, Veggie Confetti, Mason Dixie and Pineapple Collaborative, to name a few. Foxtrot is also the newest neighborhood watering hole for coffee with friends, made with beans from local roaster Vigilante Coffee, or happy hour with coworkers which can be enjoyed on the store’s patio. Guests can pick out a bottle of wine from the over 200 bottles featured in store, all hand selected by Foxtrot’s sommelier Dylan Melvin, that range from everyday bottles (more than half are priced affordably at under $25) to special occasion and experimental wines.
