Best Dining at a Grocery Store

Editors' Pick

The arrival of the “grocerant” trend has transformed the renovated Whole Foods Market in Silver Spring into a grocery store with counter-service restaurants, seating for 95 and plenty of table space. Paper Horse, a Chinese fast-casual concept created for the chain by noted chef Erik Bruner-Yang, offers high-quality ramen, bao and noodles, while a Genji sushi bar turns out bubble tea and a wide variety of rolls. That’s not to mention an expanded coffee and fresh-pressed juice bar, self-serve acai bowls, and an extensive prepared foods section with brick- oven pizza whole or by the slice, plus gazillions of salads, sandwiches, soups and hot dishes. It’s one-stop eating; after lunch or dinner, you can stock up on groceries for home.
