Meet the (DC) Family: Spike Gjerde and Corey Polyoka

Spike Gjerde holds dismantling the industrial machine of agriculture right up there with serving hearty, seasonal, local food at his projects, the James Beard Award-winning Woodberry Kitchen, Artifact, Parts and Labor and a bakery that is coming soon. Proprietor and Woodberry Kitchen bar expert Corey Polyoka can make you a drink using only ingredients that could have been sourced in the pre-prohibition era.

Together the pair are opening A Rake’s Progress in the Line DC – a restaurant where every ingredient will be chosen for a reason, but where you won’t have to know the reason to have a good time.
