Bring It On
Breakfast lovers, rejoice! LeDroit Park hangout The Royal has updated its morning offerings with a new fried egg sandwich on brioche bread, thick-cut toast topped with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, capers and dill, and a sausage creation featuring a house-made pork patty stacked with eggs, cotija cheese and chimichurri. Look for other winter warmers (fried pork belly, porter beer-cheese soup) throughout the day.
Those perfectly cooked breakfast bites popping up in Starbucks’ display windows come courtesy of the culinary pros at Cuisine Solutions. The high-tech kitchen, which has an outpost in Alexandria, Va., began supplying the ubiquitous coffee chain with precisely heated egg dishes a few weeks back. Taste the future — now with bacon and Gruyere! — today.
Beans to bar evangelist Gjergji Dollani is bringing his gourmet chocolates to 1423 H St. NW. Café Chocolat, a combination cafe and retail operation, is expected to open later this spring. Expect high-end sweets and specialty coffee.
