Meet Your New Young & Hungry Writer

As frequent visitors may have surmised, there's been light posting in this space lately: Last week was the great Chris Shott's final one as your Young & Hungry blogger. Fear not! The dry spell will come to an end soon: As of May 21, Bisnow's Jessica Sidman will take over. Here's the internal City Paper email […]

Your Outgoing Y&H Answers the Tough Questions

One of the first things the editor asked me to do when I was hired here in 2006 was host an online chat. Five years later, as I leave Washington City Paper, I realize that I never conducted a single chat. Not one. It's one of the great failures of my tenure at the paper. […]

Scott Reitz Joins Y&H Team to Blog About Bar Food and Home Cooking

You may have read Scott Reitz's food writing at the Washington Post. Or on DCist. Or even on his own no-holds-barred blog, District Plates. But starting on Monday, you'll find Scott Reitz right here on Young & Hungry, writing about home cooking and that increasingly crowded (and overlooked) topic of bar food. If you've read […]

Y&H to Appear in This Year’s Best Food Writing Collection

Because I pretend to be too humble to write about myself, I asked editor Michael Schaffer to announce the news: Y&H will appear in the 2010 edition of Best Food Writing with last fall's cover story on Zagat. You can read all about it over on City Desk in the boss' generous post. As fate […]

The 2010 Young & Hungry Dining Guide Now Online

To those who've been asking, or even those who have not, this year's Young & Hungry Dining Guide is now available online. As they say during sports broadcasts, we've had some technical difficulties. The online version is not a complete duplication of the printed dining guide. It still doesn't feature the introduction found in the […]

How to Make the World’s Best Butter Chicken

Perhaps that's an exaggeration, but it's one born from childhood memories, which are prone to romantic visions of the past, particularly with memories tied to formative eating experiences. Writer and cookbook author Monica Bhide takes over the Young & Hungry column this week with a story about the butter chicken her father used to make. […]

Vox Populi: Restaurant Rater mcclive on EatBar

It's time again for Vox Populi, when we turn the blog over to you, the loyal reader, to give us your opinion on an area restaurant. This edition features a Y&H favorite, mcclive, one of the most thorough and trusted voices in all of Restaurant Rater-land. Here's his take on EatBar:

Mouthing Off: Y&H Readers Have Their Say

Did we destroy the myth of Maryland fried chicken? The thought struck me recently that I ask a lot from you, faithful Y&H Nation. Many of you respond in kind, perhaps hoping your words will one day appear in the newsletter (sign up at right!) or blog. And what do I do? I sit on […]

The Road to Capital City Diner Winds Through New York and Lots of D.C. Bureaucracy

When Matt Ashburn and Patrick Carl first spotted the historic Avoca Diner on eBay more than 11 months ago, they had no idea what a hassle it would be to buy the 1947 prefab structure, move it to D.C., and prepare it for its second life as Capital City  Diner. Nor did the owners know much […]

The Site of D.C.’s Most Famous Chili Parlor

No, Founding Farmers didn't take over the space of the old chili parlor. The bean supplier was a footnote in D.C.'s gastronomic history long before the International Monetary Fund opened its second building in 2005 in the 1900 block of Pennsylvania Avenue NW. In fact, Founding Farmer's address, 1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, is two digits […]
