It’s no secret that we love NRG (Neighborhood Restaurant Group). They run 20 independent restaurants in 3 states + DC including places like Iron Gate, Bluejacket, Churchkey, and The Partisan. Like many, their current business model isn’t sustainable in this climate, and their goal is to continue providing jobs for their staff while feeding the community, which is why they decided to create Neighborhood Provisions.
It’s an online destination with all sorts of goodies – think ready made meals, pantry items, drinks, and more. It’s a team effort featuring the talents of their various chefs, beverage specialists, and managers. With this platform, DMV-ers will be able to enjoy dishes like Anthony Chittum’s chicken soup (from Iron Gate), Jarrad Silver’s mushroom fricassee (from Churchkey), and Nate Anda’s meatball sub (The Partisan & Red Apron) in the comfort of their homes.
They’re currently delivering to Alexandria, Arlington, and DC, but they’re adding Fairfax as well so check back soon. You can pick-up or get delivery from 11AM-9PM daily, but you need to place your order 24 hours in advance so keep that in mind.
Their Red Apron butcher shops in Penn Quarter and Virginia will stay open so you can hit them up for counter service, but if you prefer, you can purchase their brined chickens, bacon and ground beef online and get it delivered to you. The same goes for Buzz Bakeshop in NoVa – get takeout or purchase delish sweets to enjoy while you quarantine and chill.
NRG’s also offering beer and wine delivery from the following restaurants: Bluejacket, Planet Wine, Rustico, The Partisan, and B-side. Spirits and cocktails by drank genius Nick Farrell are available at their DC locations, and you can purchase various different drinks on the Neighborhood Provisions website so definitely take a look see.
Every dollar spent will earn customers points towards gift certificates for their businesses post-apocalypse, and they’re offering industry an additional 10% off so please help spread the word. For a detailed FAQ on this new service, make sure you check out this page with common questions and whatnot.
They also have a GoFundMe up to help raise money to pay their employees during this difficult time. If you have the means, please consider donating, and make sure you guys check out this post as well to see other fundraising efforts for local restaurants across the US.
