Week In Reviews

For this week's First Bite column, Tom Sietsema visits Pentagon City's Epic Smokehouse, which he writes "raises the design bar for barbecue joints." Of the smoked meats on the menu, the critic takes a look at the "pork ribs that ricochet from sweet to sassy with their seasoning of brown sugar, dried chipotle and (spoiler alert!) Old Bay spice. The latter dish, portioned as if for Fred Flintstone, comes with golden hand-cut fries and coleslaw that could use more binder." [WaPo]
