Can a Food Writer Go Meatless for a Month?

We all have to eat for our well being, but not all of us have to eat for a living. Missy Frederick does. The restaurant and retail writer for the Washington Business Journal dines at area restaurants about five (or more) times a week, trying new menus and scouting out expired leases. But for March […]

Yes, It’s Time for Pho. But Where?

A friend of mine has been in the mood for pho. And the winter blast we're having makes for a perfect excuse to go seek out the traditional Vietnamese soup. I've been thinking of pho places accessible by public transit and within a 20-minute Metrorail ride of downtown D.C. I'm catching a movie tonight, and […]

Young & Hungry Dining Guide by the Day: Pho 75

From Wheaton to Falls Church, I’ve tried countless bowls of pho looking for one with the depth and pure heady aroma of Pho 75’s. I have yet to find one, which is why when I need a fix of this Vietnamese noodle soup, I continue to roll right into Hyattsville. I can’t vouch for the […]

D.C. Dish Hall of Fame Update: Who’s Really Deserving?

The Five Guys burger in all its unfiltered glory We're down to the wire on the D.C. Dish Hall of Fame contest. You have only until Friday to cast your vote. As you likely know by now, the top five dishes will be part of the hall's inaugural class, with more plates to be inducted […]

D.C. Dish Hall of Fame Update: Amsterdam Rises!

The big news this week concerns Amsterdam Falafelshop's dramatic rise to second place on the D.C. Dish Hall of Fame leaderboard.  The falafel's surge was no doubt assisted by promotions like this one on VegDC.com's Facebook page, which of course points out the whole problem with online public surveys: Folks can stuff the ballot box. […]

D.C. Dish Hall of Fame Leaderboard: High-End Dining Lurks in the Background

With only three weeks of voting left in the D.C. Dish Hall of Fame, the leaderboard remains virtually unchanged from last week's, save for a little jockeying at the bottom and 2Amys' suddenly move into a fourth-place tie with the falafel sandwich at Amsterdam. Remember, only the top five dishes will be part of the […]

D.C. Dish Hall of Fame Leaderboard: Same As It Ever Was

The D.C. Dish Hall of Fame leaderboard remains virtually unchanged after a week of voting, save for the flip-flop of the ninth and tenth place dishes. After a strong surge last week, Horace & Dickie's  fried whiting moves up a notch into ninth place. But I have to say, I think the list is still […]

Horace & Dickie’s Enters the Leaderboard in D.C. Hall of Fame Voting

Y&H has been promoting the pleasures of fried whiting for years. It's truly one of the District's under-appreciated plates, which is why I was happy to see the whiting at Horace & Dickie's enter this week's leaderboard for the D.C Dish Hall of Fame. Granted, the dish still doesn't have enough votes to enter the […]

Fast Foods Take the Lead in D.C. Dish Hall of Fame Voting

Voting is just a couple of weeks old for the inaugural class of the D.C. Dish Hall of Fame, but already a pattern has emerged: Fast foods are dominating the competition. That's hardly surprising, of course. On a daily basis, you know that people order about 500 more half smokes at Ben's Chili Bowl than, […]

Vote for D.C.’s Hall of Fame Dishes!

A couple of weeks ago, Y&H asked you to nominate the entrees and appetizers and desserts that you felt were worthy of inclusion into a D.C. Dish Hall of Fame. Y'all tore into the assignment like a pack of wolves on a dead carcass.  I received Tweets, personal e-mails, and lots of suggestions via the […]
