1300 Connecticut Ave, NW

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.

712 7th Street, NW

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.

There is a media preview early next week for the new Dupont Beafsteak location – so they’ll likely be open to the public this week or early next week. You can see their menu here. The Foggy Bottom location opened back in March. Stay tuned for an exact date for the Dupont location. Update: “The restaurant opens to the public on September 29.”

701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

A couple weeks ago we learned a Chop’t was coming to the Navy Memorial Plaza next to the Paul bakery. More food options are coming to the plaza. Native Foods Café is coming to the vacant space next to 701 Restaurant.


According a liquor license application:

“Restaurant serving vegan food with a seating capacity for 66 and total occupancy load of 98. Side Café with 40 seats.”

Hours will be 10:30 am – 11 pm Monday-Sunday.

According to their website:

“Native Foods Café is the premier chef-crafted vegan restaurant serving homemade, fresh food every day of the week. Native Foods Cafe has attracted acclaim in Zagat, USA Today, VegNews and numerous other publications.”

You can see their Menus here.

801 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

And for those who remember the space that used to have the good pizza on the other side of the plaza – It’s going to be a Plan B Burger Bar. Washington Business Journal reported:

“The burger-centric restaurant and bar has signed a lease for retail space at 801 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. It will be the group’s first restaurant outside of New England.”

Their website says they offer beef, burgers, bourbon and beer. You can see their full menus here.

Updates as both spots get closer to opening.
