Dining:

Welcome to Duck and the Peach, plus a peek at The Wells and La Collina

Happy Boxing Day, everyone! This morning, I stopped by the Duck and the Peach and was also shown how the spaces at gin joint The Wells and Italian restaurant La Collina are coming along. Here are a few photos to get you excited about the lovely spaces and the three different offerings: The Duck and the Peach is casual American, with coffee by Small Planes and loads of delicious pastries; The Wells is a gin-themed bar; and La Collina will be a lunch-and-dinner-only Italian restaurant.

The Duck and the Peach, the first of three restaurants to open at The Residences at Eastern Market, 300 7th Street SE, is an all-day, cozy, “your-living-room-but-better” concept. The name is an homage to family nicknames. (Photo by Maria Helena Carey)
The main dining space over at La Collina. So beautiful. Some of the COVID-related delays have set back vents, custom benches and signange. (MHC)
La Collina was designed with a family-minded, sharing mindset– something that can only really be done with takeout and in your bubble these days. It’s been a really challenging task to change the mindset from focusing on food that is ready to eat and instead working on a menu that travels well, Hollis tells me. Look out for pasta kits from La Collina, coming shortly after they open– within the next few weeks. Everything is very touch and go at the moment. (MHC)
Never pass up a chance to take a bathroom selfie. The bathroom space, which is shared between all three places, is absolutely lovely. (MHC)
The Wells is set up as a lovely, intimate gin bar, with dark green walls and a plush, mid-century modern feel. (MHC)
The Wells has these cozy booths to wind down and enjoy a beautiful gin cocktail. COVID can’t go away quickly enough to try out one of these gorgeous seating areas. (MHC)

Some of the homey touches all around the restaurant. The paintings that grace many of the walls were made by Hollis’ late father, Chipp Wells. (MHC)
Many of the decorations at The Duck and the Peach came from Hollis’ family, like the saw blade at one end of the living room. (MHC)
We may not be able to enjoy the indoor seating at any of the three places just yet, but the spacious patio is available. Hopefully, there will be space heaters soon. In the meantime, enjoy this pretty peek looking out onto the patio, from The Duck and the Peach. (MHC)
