Tyler Cowen on DC Dining

tyler-cowen-120.jpgThe Huffington Post has an excellent interview today with economist, writer and ultimate DC food nerd Tyler Cowen, who discusses the prevalence of mid-level, gimmicky restaurants, the rise of good fast food and DC's overall status in the food world. Noting that DC "will never be as big" as New York or LA, Cowen explains, "We have a lot of transient people here. We have a lot of interns. We have a lot of political people here. I'm not saying they all have bad taste. But I'm not sure they have the levels of taste that get you to being the very very best." [HuffPo]
