Chef Matt Baker, the owner and founder of Gravitas, has opened a second location of upscale cafe Baker’s Daughter in Chinatown in Washington, DC. The bakery-cafe concept is from the same team behind the Michelin-recognized Gravitas in the Ivy City neighborhood.
The 600 square-foot space will feature grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, soups and prepared entrees. À la carte offerings can rotate seasonally and include items like the signature breakfast sandwiches, matzah ball soup, and a classic Jambon Beurre.
Baker’s Daughter Chinatown offers a variety of coffee, espresso drinks, and fresh-pressed juices. This particular location offers an expanded line of baked goods from Aisha Momaney, its pastry chef. Whoopie pies, s’more rice crispy treats, palmiers, and blueberry muffins are certain to be fan favorites.
The new bakery cafe will also offer single-serving custards, cookies and cakes in the café counter coolers.
Catering packages will offer the convenience of prepared meals for holidays and gatherings. Baker’s Daughter Chinatown will import the café’s popular holiday to-go feast selections menu. Look for large-format Thanksgiving meals, Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed packages, family spreads for Christmas and Hanukkah, as well as grill boxes for Independence Day and Super Bowl game day spreads.
In 2015, Zagat named Chef Baker in its “Top 30 under 30” list, and his impressive resume includes stints at Krish in Singapore, and Robert Wiedmaier’s Brasserie Beck and the Occidental Grill & Seafood in DC.
The shop will open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Customers can order for dine-in, carryout and third-party delivery.
Baker’s Daughter Downtown, the third location of the concept, will soon open on the ground floor of the Eaton DC.
