WASHINGTON, DC. - Red Apron Burger Bar

1323 Connecticut Ave., NW

The folks behind Red Apron Butcher jump into the burger game in Dupont Circle. Chef Nate Anda exclusively sources grass-fed Virginia beef for the patties: Black Angus or lesser-known Ancient White Park. Offerings range from a classic single patty with cheese and “special sauce” for under $6, to more decadent options such as a double-beef-and-chorizo burger with tomato aioli and bacon-braised onions. Also on tap: chicken and veggie burgers, spuds fried in beef fat, soft serve, and a variety of cold brews from NRG beer guru Greg Engert.

La Puerta Verde

2001 Fenwick St., NE

Restaurateur Ari Gejdenson (Ghibellina) just opened his third concept in Ivy City’s Hecht Warehouse development: a Mexican restaurant that joins Ari’s Diner and Dock FC soccer bar. The 85-seat cantina specializes in regional Mexican fare from chef Carlos Camacho, including coastal dishes such as ceviches and grilled whole fish in banana leaves, and a variety of tacos (three for $9). Wash it all down with margaritas, Mexican beers, and horchata.
