business news in context, analysis with attitude

Love this piece in the Washington Post, about Duke's Grocery in Dupont Circle, a new store described as a sandwich shop and market that features "a melting pot of a menu, with classic deli sandwiches mingling with Italian subs, Vietnamese banh mi, tandoori chicken and classic British fare ... When you pick up your sandwiches, you can grab groceries or a coffee, too. Duke’s will feature produce for sale from Potomac Farm Market, which also supplies the restaurant with its ingredients. A vintage espresso machine will keep guests caffeinated when they stop in for an English breakfast or pastry — breakfast and brunch service will be coming soon after opening."

But here's where it gets really different: "Duke’s is a sandwich shop and market by day and a bar by night. Expect concoctions like a Dark and Stormy made with house-made ginger-chili syrup, and a citrusy Shoreditch Fizz, with citron vodka, prosecco, limoncello fresh lemon and basil. There will also be local craft beers and a wine list featuring varietals from around the globe."

Y'know how I'm always talking about differentiation?

Well, this is what I'm talking about!
