The Washington Post takes a look today at America Eats Tavern and all the historical research that went into creating the Penn Quarter pop-up. Rob Wilder, José Andrés's partner in the ThinkFoodGroup, explains the chef's love for American culinary history thusly: "He’s always making comments ... about how native-born chefs haven’t been diving as deep into the cuisine and the history as he thinks it deserves. He’s like the Tocqueville of the culinary world."
