DC Eater gets a look inside the new diner, including lots of photos (like the one above) and a peek at the menu:
Family Meal will be canning and selling preserves seasonally, including pickled ramps, okra and string beans now, with plans for canned peaches and apricots later. These will also be used in dishes at Family Meal. Though the menu isn’t yet set, expect things like fried chicken, waffles, meatloaf, pork chops, seared whole fish, and an emphasis on local produce — including Family Meal’s own tomatoes, planted outside the restaurant. Fries will be available cooked in canola oil, peanut oil and assorted animal fats such as duck fat. On the dessert side, they’ll also be doing pastries for breakfast and cakes, pies, cookies and ice cream sundaes otherwise.
