EatsPlace was featured on the Washington Full Circle Magazine episode on DC’s Creative Economy & The Restaurant Industry. Check out host Kelly Carter Knight and me discussing food incubators, small businesses and culinary startups in DC. And we make duck sauce marshmallows, which hit all the cravable sweet/savory/spicy notes. If we look serious it’s because heated sugar is deliciously dangerous.

Dinner and weekend brunch start Thursday with our beloved BevEggs Pork & Grits.
