Stefanie Gans to Join Young & Hungry Blog Team

You may know Stefanie Gans (repeat after me: there's no "ph" in Stefanie!) from her post about the nine SoCal foods that you won't find in our farmers markets. Or from her story about a stuffed eggplant in which the cooked vegetable was as hard as a ceramic bowl. Or from her item about the […]

Birch & Barley/ChurchKey’s Greg Engert to Guest Blog on Y&H

Starting Friday, Y&H will be on vacation, far from computers and their crack-like ability to keep me addicted to them. No, I'll be sleeping late, eating well, and trying to hide my spare tire with beach towels. This is not the news. The news is Greg Engert, beer director for the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, including […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Spike Mendelsohn's now-it's-open, now-it's-not pizzeria continued to attract readers in droves to the Y&H blog, probably because no one had any clue when the joint would actually open. It's supposed to launch today. The week was marked by some other high-trafficked items, including the latest food trucks coming to our streets this summer. Take a […]

Guest Blogger Sasha Issenberg to Take Over Y&H This Week

All this week, your semi-humble Y&H will be doing what comes naturally — stuffing his face. I wish I could say I'm doing it all for pleasure, but, in fact, it's for a cause other than to expand my waistline. I'm searching for more worthy contenders for this year's Young & Hungry Dining Guide, which […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Y&H feels so cheap. I did much the same thing that I accused of doing — ginning up a little controversy at someone else's expense to generate hits. My "fan" letter to the food site drew attention from coast to coast and elsewhere. The item was the clear winner of the week. Take a […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

It was a week in which newcomers — the theme of this year's Best of D.C. issue — also dominated the Y&H blog. The Queen's upcoming appearance on H Street NE (The Queen Vic, that is) drew most of the attention, as is proper, but the reigning royalty of sandwich-making, Taylor Gourmet, was not far […]

This Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Pizza, beer, and controversy. It's a regular menu for success on Young & Hungry. The most-popular posts this week include news of a second location of Pete's Apizza and an internecine battle between a pair of bagel store owners. The latter, in fact, was the most-read item (well, if you exclude the post about a […]

This Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

OK, that's it. I'm tired of including Select 55, that piss-water of a beer, in our weekly count-down feature. Starting this week, I'm officially omitting the perpetually clicked-upon item and noting, with an asterisk (*), where it would have fallen in the Top 5, assuming it would. With that said, here are your most-read blog […]

Young & Hungry Appears on CNN!

Well, sort of. At about the 1:56 mark in this segment on restaurant critics and anonymity, CNN captures a screen shot of your beloved Young & Hungry blog. I'm still trying to figure out whether CNN used Young & Hungry because we are a marvel of search-engine optimization or because they were trying to suggest […]

This Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Well, look who's back at No. 1? Our old friend Select 55, who just couldn't stand being out of the limelight for a couple of weeks. This week's top blog posts feature a couple of hard-charging items published late in the week, including a campaign to protect Rock Art Brewery from corporate beer behemoths on […]
