Will Artley's Pizzeria Orso Menu; Basil Thyme Towed

FALLS CHURCH—Now that chef Will Artley is installed over at Pizzeria Orso, the restaurant has introduced a brand new menu. It'll still focus on pizza, but Artley has added a variety of small plates to include meat, fish, vegetables and pasta. So things like meatballs, grilled octopus and smoked chickpeas. There are also new pizzas like a wild mushroom, mozzarella, fontina and parmesan pie named The Fun Guy. [EaterWire]

FOOD TRUCKS—DCist reports that the Basil Thyme truck was towed and impounded this afternoon at Metro Center. Owner Brian Farrell explains "he was told he owed the city about $1,000 in outstanding parking tickets, most of which were incurred from extended stays in parking-meter spaces." [DCist]

IMAGE INTERLUDE—To your right, please see a photograph of Top Chef alums Paul Qui and Ed Lee from the most recent season, who were in town over the weekend for a cooking demo. But, of course, they also ate things while they were in town and an Eater tipster sends over a photo of the pair at Ray's Hell Burger. So they obviously got some good recommendations.
