After several years of construction and anticipation, H Street’s Whole Foods will be opening this Wednesday (pending the snow) at 6th and H Streets, NE in the Apollo Building. The store will open with a bread breaking ceremony at 8:45 in the morning. District Cuisine took a sneak peak of the store over the weekend. The entire building was previously a combination of Murray’s (grocery store), Good Danny’s (Chinese food), and H Street Self Storage.
In addition to the usual Whole Foods offerings, the store will have quite a few locally sourced products ranging from beer to gelato to snacks to pastries. The prepared foods area will also feature a new Chinese diner concept by Maketto owner Eric Bruner-Yang. The second floor of the store will have a bar and will offer beer and wine that can be purchased and then consumed throughout the store or even on the patio outside. For the first week, the store will have several doorbuster deals on products throughout the store.
