The folks behind Grassroots Gourmet, a made-to-order bakery company, announced earlier this week that they signed a lease for their brick-and-mortar shop in the Bloomingdale neighborhood, 104 Rhode Island Ave NW. If all goes well, the pastry shop will open early fall. Owners Sara Fatell and Jamilyah Smith-Kanze have lived in the area for years so they wanted to also cater to the neighborhood. "This is our happy playground," Fatell told Eater.
