DC Eater Article Highlights Dining Options In Langdon And Woodridge

We thought neighbors would be interested in exploring some eats in the Woodridge/Langdon area that perhaps they haven’t had a chance to check out yet, or weren’t aware of. This article in DC Eater came out a few months ago, so forgive us for taking so long to post about it, but we think it is worth checking out. The piece has write ups for the following places:

  • The Public Option
  • Good Food Market
  • Subbs by Carl
  • Nido
  • Zeke’s Coffee of DC
  • Rita’s Italian Ice
  • Deli City
  • Mason Dixie Biscuit Company
  • Harper Macaw Factory
  • DC Brau Brewing Company

It’s great to see these great establishments getting some coverage. Happy eating!

Harper Macaw Chocolate Factory To Open In NE DC

We recently learned from this Washington City Paper article that a chocolate factory and retailer named  Harper Macaw will be opening its doors near us soon. Harper Macaw is located at 3160 Bladensburg Road NE between N Eastern Avenue and  N Fort Lincoln Drive (and happens to be next door to DC Brau to boot).  From the article:

Harper Macaw’s factory will host its grand opening on Dec. 12 from 12 to 6 p.m. with tours and tastings. (They’ve yet to decide if they will charge a nominal fee for tours.) The factory, open only on Saturdays for now, will sell chocolate plus baked goods made out of its products, including salted caramel brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate-covered coconut macaroons. There will also be various drinking chocolates, including peppermint and chai flavors. The Hartmans are considering whether they’ll host classes going forward, but they will offer private events and tastings upon request.

Sounds great. We also like that they buy their beans from sustainable cacao farms, and a percentage of chocolate bar sales go to a non-profit that acquires deforested and threatened land in the Amazon rain forest.
