A little over a month ago, DC's favorite streetwear brand, Durkl, returned to its roots with its new venture, Maketto. The brilliant merger of a cafe, restaurant and retail store all converge at their brand new location on H St in Northeast DC. Their two-floor, nearly 6000 square foot space houses the unique concept which is a collaboration between Toki Underground owner Erik Bruner-Yang and Durkl's Will Sharp. A flagship unlike any other with its ingenious blend of food and menswear, it is certainly an interesting experiment to say the least on what seems to be the District's new popular corridor. The carefully-curated mixture of local businesses is subtle in its execution with no signage dictating when you've gone from one section to the next. The restaurant which may be the part I'm personally most eager to try, is a "journey through Cambodian and Taiwanese cooking inspired by the people and the flavors of their cultures," as described on their website. The cafe, is yet another partnership of DC businesses with the workings of Chris Vigilante of Vigilante Coffee Company and Frenchie's Erika Skolnik. After hearing so many wonderful things about the space and seeing the amazing views, I definitely can't wait to visit Maketto on my next excursion into the city.
