ANIMAL REPORT: Dean and Deluca's Rat Issues
The Oculus hears that a good Samaritan in Georgetown recently noticed a massive rat infestation behind the Dean and Deluca on M Street. Though the creatures didn't pose a threat to food safety and storage at the upscale specialty grocer, the good Samaritan kindly told the Dean and Deluca crew that it wasn't a pretty scene from his apartment's vantage point across the C&O Canal.
Dean and Deluca said essentially, "thank you, but the rats aren't a problem." So he called District authorities and soon, some leafy foliage was removed from Dean and Deluca's back side, and the rats went away.
Again, there weren't any problems with rats gnawing on the Foie Gras de Moulard, Humbolt Fog cheese and black truffle carpaccio, just to be clear.
