Veg Day on Y&H: A Postscript

The seasonal pumpkin-tapioca dessert at New Kam Fong From the look of things, y'all have a strong interest in vegetarian food. Yesterday, the Y&H blog had some of its highest traffic numbers ever for a Monday, which, of course, is not why we do these kind of themed days. We do them in the name […]

Young & Hungry Dining Guide by the Day: Inox

One by one, we’re running through the 50 restaurants that made the cut on this year’s Young & Hungry Dining Guide. If you have visited the day’s featured restaurant, let us know what you think. If you’re planning to visit for the first time, tell us about your meal when you return. Let me boil […]

A Break Down of Travel + Leisure’s 50 Best New U.S. Restaurants

I know that others have previously mentioned Travel + Leisure's list of the 50 best new restaurants in America, but I finally got a chance to review the magazine's related slideshow. I dutifully clicked on one slide after another after another, trying to discover which cities outperformed D.C. for these 50 coveted spots. Our metro […]

Best of D.C.: A Confession About Best New Restaurant

Y&H will skip the tears and gnashing of teeth and get right to the confession: If the Best of D.C. issue would have been released next week, I would have selected another place as Best New Restaurant. Unfortunately, I dined at Eventide too late for deadline. Make no mistake, Inox is deserving of the crown, […]

The editors (aka, the Meat Grinders) are busy putting the final touches on this year's Best of D.C. issue, even though all the picks have already been made, including a large number in the Food & Drink section. Personally, if you ask me, too much emphasis is placed on the Best Restaurant category. Seriously, do […]

Daily Food Blog Roundup: A Few of My Favorite Things

After last week, in which Y&H spent more time with his computer than his bed, his wife, and his dog combined, and after a full weekend of cooking, eating, and cooking some more, Y&H is ready to ease into his week with some of his favorite blogs. Alinea at Home overcomes her fear of the […]

A Slavish Devotion to the New New Thing

A well-established D.C. chef/owner once bitched to me that his restaurants don't get the same coverage as the flashy new joints with the multi-million-dollar build-outs and the pedigreed toques pushing yet another take on New American cooking. I was sympathetic. It's true, food writers, like most journalists, tend to have a slavish devotion to the […]

So Many New Restaurants to Check Out, So Little Weekend

We in the D.C. region are fortunate. Restaurants, ones that aren't afraid to pump serious money into their build-outs and staffing, are still opening in our area, despite the nasty economy. In the past week, three new places have been launched and one Arlington institution has moved into a swankier space. It's making my weekend […]
