WASHINGTON, DC - Little Coco’s owners Jackie Greenbaum and Gordon Banks have rotated through tropical beach and alpine lodge themed pop-ups in the space above their Petworth Italian restaurant. But now they’ve settled on something permanent and a lot more evergreen: burgers.

Lucy’s, named after Greenbaum’s first giant schnauzer, quietly opened last night with just four burgers. The menu is totally different from Slash Run, which the restaurateurs sold a year ago to a former manager. The staple burger ($6.49) draws inspiration from Little Tavern, the defunct chain of local burger restaurants known for their iconic green roofs. “Your breath always smelled like onions after you had those little death balls,” Greenbaum says of the Little Tavern burgers. “They were kind of gross and wonderful at the same time.” At Lucy’s, four-ounce beef patties (not sliders) are upgraded with minced white onions and a dijon mustard aioli (no pickle) and served on a buttered and toasted potato bun from Lyon Bakery.
