The Eleanor is an unexpected gem of a restaurant in North East DC. When you walk in you’re greeted with arcade vibes; there’s a two lane bowling alley, an awesome collection of pinball machines, and even skeeball! What you might not expect is that they’re also serving up some of the most creative eats around.
Hushpuppies "Elotes Loco" style was one of our favorites, they combine crunchy hushpuppies with all the trappings of a perfectly grilled Mexican street corn which was an awesome mash-up. Another surprising and fun combination was the kimchi loaded hot dog with furikake; a perfect all-beef hot dog topped with kimchi, mayo, scallions, and furikake.
If you’re looking for somewhere to forget about adulting for a little while but still want to eat eat locally sourced, sustainable, and creative food then DEFINITELY check out The Eleanor. Check out the YouTube video below to see exactly what exactly it's like inside!
