Alex McCoy has left Duke's Grocery. His eventual plan is to open his own Southeast Asian restaurant, Washington Post reports.

No lease is signed yet, but McCoy's restaurant-to-be will focus on such cuisines as Thai and Lao. He plans to travel to Asia to research the project and will open the restaurant with his brother, Nathaniel.

Meanwhile, Rick Koplau is taking the reins at Duke's Grocery.
