DC's Secret Dishes; A Free Turkish Coffee Food Truck

LISTICLES—Zagat continues a listicle-making spree with this helpful guide to eight off-menu dishes worth inquiring after. These include the spaghetti with sea urchins at Bibiana, a dumpling plate at The Source, fried oysters with buffalo sauce at Hank's Oyster Bar during football season and a foie gras-topped Belgian waffle at Marcel's.

EVERYWHEREA Turkish coffee company is teaming up with the American Turkish Association of Washington now through the end of the month to bring free cups of Turkish coffee to the masses. According to the Washington Post, they launch a truck today that will wander DC's streets until the annual Turkish Festival on September 30, giving out free cups and offering fortune readings from the coffee grounds.

EVERYWHERE—Thrillist reports that those previously reported Whole Foods pubs are officially open for business in Arlington and Alexandria for all those who prefer to imbibe inside a grocery store. There are stools to hang out, or you can just carry your beer around the store. Meanwhile, other locations are coming to Tenleytown and P Street, per the Washingtonian. [Thrillist, Washingtonian]
