Where to find Maille Dijon Mustard in DC...

Does anyone know where I can find Maille Dijon Mustard in Washington, DC - (Dupont Circle maybe)? The label looks familiar, but I don't remember seeing it in anywhere local.

  1. FWIW it's out in Reston at Safeway and Giant. However, the large seed variety is only at one of two Sway's near me and the Giant closest, so particular types are hit and miss, but the overall brand is at all of them.

    1. I'm sure you'll find it at Rodman's on Wisconsin Ave (Friendship Heights Metro). As a "by the way", I recently bought Trader Joe's brand of Dijon mustard and thought it was very good.

      1. I didn't realize it was anything special. I have a jar in my refrigerator now and I'm pretty sure I bought it at Shopper's. At places like Safeway, it might be in the "gourmet foods" aisle since it cost's more than French's yellow in the squeeze bottle.

        1. re: MikeR

          Cooks Illustrated rated Maille pretty highly for easily-available dijons. I,too, have seen it at Giant, Safeway & Super Fresh.

            They rated Grey Poupon higher--or was it Consumer Reports? We like Maille for the snob factor.

              Snob factor is very important. I used to like Grey Poupon until they started advertising it heavily. But there are dozens of different mustards on the shelf at just about any grocery store. There must be a good reason to have an assortment, but I'm not enough of a mustard snob to know what goes best with what. .

                It wasn't Cook's magazine - it was one of their TV shows. Either way, I use either Grey Poupon or Maille (do love the snob factor !!! ) just depending on what I grab. Either one works ok for me. It's just one of those kitchen basics that I have on hand all the time and I don't want to have to go to a special store to buy it.

          2. I'm pretty sure I saw it at the Magruders in Falls Church. Maybe other branches of the chain have it. (Magruders carries a couple brands of French Dijon which is actually made in France)

            1. I saw it today at Dean and Delucca in Georgetown - $5.00 for a small jar. They had both the original and honey dijon.
