The Neighborhood Restaurant Group, owner of Red Apron, has finally announced long-awaited plans to open a bricks-and-mortar location to showcase Anda’s meaty skills. Red Apron is tentatively scheduled to debut this fall at 709 D St. NW, in Penn Quarter.
The 3,600-square-foot retail space will offer all the usual items available online, at Planet Wine and at the farmers markets where Red Apron sells half-smokes, hot dogs, pates, dry sausages, duck rillettes, slab bacon and many other products. The bricks-and-mortar space will also sell fresh cuts of beef, pork and lamb, each fabricated from whole animals at the NRG commissary. The cuts will include the obvious ones — tenderloins, rib-eyes, strip steaks — plus off-cuts and, for adventurous home cooks, even offal.
