Bar Pilar/Saint-Ex Happy Hours; Puck Talks Top Chef

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

14TH STREET Cafe Saint-Ex and Bar Pilar both launch their first happy hours tonight, and the sister restaurants had their customers vote on what they wanted to see for their specials. For Pilar, that means theme nights like "Sour Mondays" and "Tonic Tuesdays", while Saint-Ex is sticking with standards like cheap beer and food specials. [EaterWire]

DCWolfgang Puck talks with Washingtonian about the upcoming season of Top Chef Seattle, for which he's a judge. Puck seems to think the DC chefs on the series ran hot and cold, and naturally thinks The Source's Scott Drewno would be a fit for a future season of the show. [Washingtonian]

CAPITOL HILLBarton Seaver and more than 500 chefs have sent a letter to Congress urging them to require that "seafood is traceable in order to prevent seafood fraud and keep illegal fish out of the U.S. market." Local chefs such as Ris LaCoste and Danny Bortnick have signed on. [EaterWire]
