Over the weekend we learned from Jose Andres’ ThinkFoodGroup:

“We will operate “Bodegas” out of our Beefsteak locations in Foggy Bottom and Dupont, adding an additional one at Jaleo DC on Monday.

These markets are intended to connect the community to staple items such as eggs, milk and flour along with household goods like cleaning solutions, paper towels and hand sanitizer, all of which have become scarce during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Beefsteak Bodega items, which will also include produce and fresh-cut vegetables, will be available for pick-up and delivery through our delivery partners from 11am to 5pm daily. Jaleo DC Bodega items will be available on the Jaleo website, for pick-up and through our delivery partners from 12pm to 8pm daily, beginning on Monday.

Thanks to Mark for sharing: “The Jaleo bodega.” Read More
