One of the most anticipated new DC restaurants, Masseria (1340 4th St. NE, DC), will be teaming up with a renowned healthcare pundit for a healthy breakfast series over the next couple of weekends.
Ezekiel “Zeke” Emanuel, healthcare pundit, will run the breakfast series on Saturday and Sunday, July 25 and 26, and Saturday and Sunday, August 1 and 2, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at the 42-seat Masseria, the first standalone restaurant in orbit of Union Market, by Nicholas Stefanelli.
As guest chef, Zeke will produce breakfasts built around his goal of “wholesome living.” His menu will consist of nutritious foods appealing to both health food advocates and political wonks, reflecting his values in healthy and affordable eating as detailed in his books “Healthcare, Guaranteed” and “The Ends of Human Life.”
A percentage of the proceeds from the breakfast series will benefit Martha’s Table, DC Central Kitchen and the Good Food Awards. Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
