Food News Roundup: Meat and Cereal Edition

Mmm, dinner is served.

News is breaking faster than Y&H can keep up with it, which means that it's time to get all HuffPo and do a little link aggregation. Let's get right to it:

  • WaPo's Tom Sietsema breaks the news about Michael Landrum's latest projects, Ray's the Glass, a Personal Wine Bar with Mark Slater (why does this sound like a late-night talk show?), and Ray's the Game, a burger joint featuring game meats.
  • For those who thought the gourmet cupcake craze was an attempt to fetishize our childhood tastes, consider this Washington Business Journal report from Missy Frederick, who tells us that the Cereal Bowl will be opening in Cleveland Park. Yep, it's a place that peddles Fruity Pebbles, Froot Loops (which the place can't even spell correctly on its Web site), Lucky Charms and the like.  This better not affect Palena's ability to expand.

  • As they head into Wednesday night's finale, Top Chef producers are milking the Voltaggio brothers'  long-time sibling rivalry for every last drop of drama. And Y&H's buds over at Capital Spice are milking the drama of the finale by organizing a contest to convince Top Chef producers to bring the franchise to the District. The person who submits the best D.C. challenge to Capital Spice wins a prize package.
  • ReadysetDC has photos of the newly opened Cork Market on the increasingly fashionable 14th Street corridor. Y&H stopped by the market this weekend and liked the rustic, brick-and-wood vibe of the place. He also liked the bacon egg salad!
  • WaPo's Jane Black takes a look at Founding Farmers' sustainable food and sourcing claims and finds them wanting.
  • Finally, Metrocurean gives us some insight on the homey menu that Ris Lacoste rolls out tonight with the long-awaited opening of RIS in the West End.

    Wow! Venison meets Snap, Crackle, and Pop. I must try and curb my enthusiasm.
