A Vegan Deli Opens in Washington, D.C.
Plant-based catering company DC Vegan adds an all-new delicatessen café—and it’s set to open in Dupont on May 1st.
The cruelty-free deli plans to offer familiar classics made with inventive preparations and organic ingredients. These from-scratch offerings will include sharable eats, handheld sandwiches, loaded bowls, and tasty desserts. With vegetable-forward options like scampi toast, fried artichoke sandwiches, and antipasti bowls on the menu, you might just want one of everything.
The new DC-based delicatessen café will be located at 1633 P Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20036 in the space that most recently housed Nazca Mochica Peruvian Restaurant.
Beyond the tasty, casual fare, DC Vegan will continue offering plant-based catering services for weddings, parties, and a variety of get-togethers. Customers may choose from breakfast dishes, boxed lunches, and dinner platters featuring pasta, chef-inspired entrees, and craveable desserts.
Can’t get enough of the cruelty-free, casual eats across the nation? DC Vegan is the sister company of Cleveland Vegan, a plant-based eatery featuring organic, scratch kitchen cuisine located in Lakewood, Ohio.
During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
