Video and Photo of President Obama’s Visit to Ray’s Hell Burger

Is it my imagination or is President Obama deliberately and almost ostentatiously squeezing Dijon mustard onto his hamburger? Take that Hannity. After the jump, check out a candid photo snapped by Y&H's bud, Joe Epstein, when the D.C. editor of Thrillist happened to be a few doors down at Ray's Hell Burger Too, as the […]

Rogue States Takes an International Approach to Burgers

The menu at Rogue States has a sort of terse, Twitter-like quality to it, simultaneously laconic and clever. You have a choice of seven specialty burgers at the Dupont Circle eatery but only two ways of getting them grilled: "pink" or "no pink." Cute but potentially frustrating. The "pink," I'd venture, is closer to medium […]

Michelle Obama Names Her Favorite Places to Eat in D.C.

If you're not the type who wants to hug Michelle Obama for spreading the joys of local produce, then maybe you're the type who can appreciate this fact: The First Lady really loves those salt-air margaritas at Oyamel! She loves them so much, she mentions them twice in this interview with WJLA. She also mentions […]

Want Some Good Street Food? Go to the Whole Foods on P.

This may be Y&H's favorite time of the year, when friends and neighbors and even the local grocery store pull out their charcoal grills (or smokers, if you're into that whole messy, drawn-out process) and start cooking up burgers and brats and Portabellas and anything else that benefits from a little smoke and char. Personally, […]

The Readers Had Their Say in 2009, Too

As the primary author of the Young & Hungry blog, I release a lot of gas into the ether. Sometimes you readers find it noxious enough to disperse with your own counterattack. It can make for an engaging round of online gasbagging. Just take a look at the four examples that Editor Andrew and I […]

The Whole Foods’ Ground Beef Grind Clock

My first thought when I saw this grind clock perched atop the meat display counter at the Whole Foods in Tenleytown was the obvious: This has to be a reaction to the New York Times' October investigation into the ground beef business, which revealed, among other things, that "a single portion of hamburger meat is often […]

Five Guys’ Supporters Rush to the Defense of the Chain Burger

It's not enough, I guess, that the Five Guys hamburger earned a spot in our inaugural D.C. Dish Hall of Fame. The burger's many fans want the respect that goes along with the honor. Everyone's respect, in fact, and either you give it or you are,  in the words of commenter The Truth, a "douche […]

One Good Burger Deserves Another

You already know that charitable giving has dropped as the recession has deepened, and yet: Despite the high unemployment numbers, despite the hit on our retirement funds, and despite the tight credit markets, ever-generous Americans are still determined to give to their favorite charities during the holidays. We may be poorer, but we're not dumber: We know non-profits need […]

Former Top Chef Contestant Blais to Open Flip Burger in D.C.

When I first heard, via this NBC Washington report, that former Top Chef contestant Richard Blais was going to open a burger joint in D.C., I immediately thought: God, it's come to this. Chefs are following Spike Mendelsohn's lead. But then I looked further into Blais' concept at Flip Burger Boutique in Atlanta, the hamburger […]

This Just In: Dupont’s Burger Joint Opening Moved to Monday

Those of you who tried to eat at the new Dupont Circle location of BGR: The Burger Joint yesterday or today, please accept Y&H's apologies. I reported earlier this week that Mark Bucher's latest burger emporium would open one of those two days. It didn't. I haven't been able to reach Bucher yet for an […]
