A Rake's Progress
At A Rake’s Progress, James Beard Award–winning chef Spike Gjerde cooks what he sources from Mid-Atlantic farms and waters. For the last decade at his Baltimore restaurant Woodberry Kitchen, Spike has been a learner and a teacher of the terroir of the region — only using ingredients found within his food system. Now in D.C., he cooks from an expanded landscape with a flavor all its own.

Spoken English is chef Erik Bruner-Yang’s interpretation of a tasting menu experience. The intimate, ten-seat restaurant presents a menu inspired by old American diner blue plate specials in a tasting menu format. After enjoying a few opening courses, guests will choose from “a meat and three sides,” served family style. Featured dishes like hand-cut fresh udon, okonomiyaki, tea lacquered peking duck, whole animal yakitori, and tempura are just a glimpse into Erik’s culinary imagination.
