You're in for some monster sandwiches and burgers at this bi-level East London-inspired spot in Dupont. Take the Proper Burger, for example, which is stacked with two griddled patties and topped with a list of flavorful ingredients that includes smoked Gouda, charred red onions, and a Thai sweet chili sauce. Beyond the Proper, their chalkboard menu offers an array of tasty dishes -- from curries to homemade pastas -- that are all made from scratch in their cozy kitchen. The laid-back neighborhood-pub vibe lets you kick back while you sip on a craft brew or cocktail.
With three locations in Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom, and Woodley Park, Duke’s Grocery is an easy option to cure burger cravings or indulge in a boozy patio brunch. Each location has ample outdoor seating options, and the menu has dishes for every season including the famous Proper Burger, Vietnamese Fried Rice, and Truffle Mac ‘n Cheese.
