Best Organic Food in and Near the Chevy Chase, DC Area
Back in January, one of our top New Year’s Resolutions was to eat healthier. One crucial aspect of healthy eating is the selection of ingredients for your food and recipes. For most people, this means choosing fresh, locally sourced organic food. In the Chevy Chase DC area, most of the neighborhood is on board with healthy eating, and there are plenty of organic shops and restaurants to choose from. Here are some of our favorites:
Comet Ping Pong
5037 Connecticut Ave NW, DC
Comet Ping Pong is a neighborhood fixture that serves up pizza made with fresh, healthy ingredients. They make efforts to serve food that is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Also, their tomato sauce is canned by them every season using Mark Toigo crop tomatoes from Pennsylvania.
A local favorite pie is The Rodrigo (Districto Federal), made with fresh organic ground beef, crema, cilantro, black beans, and lime salsa. For dessert, Comet Ping Pong also serves organic ice cream! And of course, according to their namesake, there are plenty of ping pong tables to play at while you wait or eat.
