It’s that classic story you’ve heard a thousand times: boy grows up playing hockey in suburban Maryland. Boy ends up on his hometown pro team, becomes fan favorite. And then that boy, now a man, decides to bestow fried chicken and donuts on those faithful fans.

Okay, so maybe it’s a unique story.

But it brings us to former Caps center Jeff Halpern, one of the partners behind Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, opening next week at Metro Center to provide your fix of sweet and savory fried stuff.

This is a tiny, grab-and-go storefront—white tile, barn wood and a dumbwaiter, from which donuts and chicken will occasionally emerge. This will have you smiling as you make choices like Southern fried chicken or double-fried, sriracha-glazed chicken. S’mores donut or carrot cake donut.

But if you’d rather not box yourself into rigid categories like “chicken” and “donuts,” there’s always this: a fried chicken breast with Benton’s bacon and sriracha mayo between two slices of savory chive-and-cheddar donut.

Then you’ll just need to pick a comfy place to tear into your handsome takeout box of fried stuff—your office, your car, the church courtyard across the street.

Get an extra donut for the collection plate.
