When Old School is Kinda Cool – Finally Checking Out Nora in Dupont Circle

You’ve never been to Nora?  But you live right around the corner.

Yes, well … So after years of living within a stone’s throw of Nora we are finally going there to check it out for ourselves.  Years – decades – after it’s been open, years after it’s the hot (or cool) place to be, we will drag ourselves over there.

I don’t know why we never wanted to go there.  Maybe because when we first moved to DC in the early 90’s, Nora was the cool place to be.  Real, locally-grown organic produce.  What a concept.  Except back then, it was quite avant-garde.

Of course back then, I was probably thinking who are these fools who pay $30 for chicken.  To be fair, I was also broke then and could live off $30 for a week – or more if I was eating at happy hour specials and going to after work receptions.

I think back then Bill Clinton and his crew went to Nora all the time.  But that would be like crashing Tosca now just to seem part of the in-crowd.  Of course, more recently, Michelle Obama has been sighted at Nora.  I guess it’s still a trendy place for politicos.

Does it live up to the hype?  We shall see.
