I'm just starting law school this year and am in dire need of a/some good grocery stores. Places around Dupont Circle are preferable, but I'm not opposed to taking the metro, espescially for the trips that will be less frequent (eg asian). There's a Safeway right here, but I'm looking for a place that may be better in terms of selection of general groceries and also better in terms of produce quality. I'm also looking for a more convenient Asian grocery store than those in the suburbs.
Upscale (read: expensive) places don't really fit the bill, as I'll be trying to keep most of my shopping within a student's budget.
