Last week I posted From 100% Canadian Chicken* to 100% Plant-Based about a Fruitive coming to the former Chickery space in Dupont Circle. But our tipster was a couple of storefronts off!! The Fruitive is coming two storefronts north closer to the circle on the same side of the street – can’t remember who had that spot – you guys? Anyway, silver lining is that I learned WHO IS taking over the old Chickery space – a HipCityVeg. So big score for plant-based eaters living/working in Dupont.

HipCityVeg openedtheir first D.C. location in Chinatown back in 2016. Any fans? You can check out their menu here.

Updates as both get closer to opening.

The Chickery (previously home to Black and Orange/Rogue States burger spot) closed back in February. Thanks to Eric for sending an update on who’s taking over the space – Fruitive. You can see their menu here. Anyone ever check out their CityCenter location? Stand by for a Dupont opening date.

*I have no idea where The Chickery’s chickens came from but the company is from Toronto and when the opportunity for alliteration comes my way, I strike.
