Don’t let the name fool you: Nothing about this humming Dupont Circle pub resembles a grocery store. Rather it has whitewashed brick walls, London street signs and a front patio strung with café lights. The short and sweet menu changes daily and is inspired by East London’s eclectic restaurant scene. That means you’ll find catfish banh mi mingling with a Za’atar-spiced eggplant sandwich and a curried vegetable bowl. The most popular dish by far is the proper burger, made with Angus beef, melted Gouda, sweet chili sauce and arugula.
