It's been more than two years since Ann Cashion and John Fulchino sold Cashion's Eat Place to long-time sous chef John Manolatos, who promised to uphold the standards of the beloved Adams Morgan eatery.

Tonight officially kicks off winter D.C. Restaurant Week, which means that if you haven't already secured your reservations to the city's finest, priciest dining rooms, you're pretty much screwed.  Because, let's be honest, if you're not hitting the most expensive restaurants, you're not getting much bang for your buck during RW.

The disappointments were stacking up yesterday morning by the time I took my huevos rancheros back to the car.
