New, 4 comments

In last Friday's Open Thread, Eater readers were asked to name the dishes that DC restaurants are missing. Some replies were more an indictment of what's already being offered — such as better soul food — while other readers simply wanted more or closer options for their favorite rare dishes. Then, of course, there are the regional favorites that DC restaurants truly are missing from their menus. Listed here, in no particular order, are suggestions from the comments, the tipline and Twitter:

1. Cambodia's amok
2. Italian Beef
3. Philly cheesesteak
4. Korean fried chicken
5. Poutine
