Bakeries and butcher shops are sorely lacking from DC's retail landscape, but given the foodie explosion that's still burning strongly, it was inevitable that our sad supply of fresh yeast would soon be over. The only catch here is that Baker Furstenberg was not-too-long-ago hired as a consultant at downtown's G Street Foods, before he got the boot for not delivering (they make a deliciously modern cuban sandwich, fyi).
And don't forget the Bethesda Bagels that is opening just down the street in the thankfully-closed, former Johnny Rockets space (apparently chain-eating American tourists do have some standards). Kalorama is clearly the next 14th Street.
