HalfSmoke, known for its gourmet, house-made sausages and signature wood-grilled entrées, is pleased to debut Butter Me Up, a new virtual kitchen pop-up to help meet the demand for additional breakfast options in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
Spearheaded by Michelle Andrade, general manager & chief operating officer for HalfSmoke, Butter Me Up’s mission is to curate innovative, yet familiar breakfast staples while uplifting the community on a path to wellness and self-care.
Beginning Friday, May 8 through May 15, Butter Me Up will offer a rotating selection of breakfast sandwiches, coffee, tea and two boozy cocktails available a la carte. All sandwiches are made from scratch and incorporate fresh, local ingredients as well as homegrown goods produced in Washington, D.C.
Gordy’s Pickle Jar, Panorama Bakery, Logan’s Sausage, Büna Coffeehouse and Southeastern Roastery.
