GBD expected to open Friday at 1323 Connecticut Avenue NW. (Rachel Nania)

On Tuesday night, GBD gave a little preview of things to come. And let me just tell you: Dupont, it was worth the wait. The Luther, alone, people… The Luther, alone.

Opening this Friday at 1323 Connecticut Avenue NW, GBD will offer doughnuts and Mad Cap coffee in the morning, fried chicken for lunch and and additional appetizers, paired with a bar menu, in the evening. (And since GBD is affiliated with Neighborhood Restaurant Group, you know the bar menu will be stellar.)

The place is being run by Chef Kyle Bailey and Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIssac, both from Logan Circle’s Birch & Barley. And the team is bringing in the expertise of DC beer guru Greg Engert.

Don’t miss:

  • The chocolate filled brioche doughnut  (with milk chocolate glaze with Cocoa Krispies)
  • The coffee cake doughnut (with spice glaze, oatmeal streusel and vanilla icing)
  • The Luther (doughnut buns, fried chicken in the middle, bacon)
  • Any of the fried chicken selections

GBD is expected to open on Friday, April 5. See you there.
