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 restaurants, which include the James Beard Award-winning Woodberry Kitchen, Artifact, and new DC projects on the horizon. 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 operating A Rake’s Progress in the Line DC, along with Executive Chef Opie Crooks – a restaurant where every ingredient is chosen for a reason, but where you won’t have to know the reason to have a good time.
