Furstenberg Gets a Rebuttal; New Ramen at Daikaya

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

FOOD MEDIAJessica Sidman is the first person out of the gate with a full rebuttal to Mark Furstenberg's controversial take on D.C. dining. One leg of her argument: "Furstenberg is right in that many of the best ethnic food joints are in the suburbs, but the entire Washington metropolitan area—including the 'burbs—is the size of other major cities. Los Angeles covers more than 500 square miles, whereas the District spans a little more than 68. Chances are if you're going to the suburbs to pick up your galangal and curry leaves at an Asian market, you'll be in traffic just as long as if you head to an Asian market in L.A." [WCP]

PENN QUARTERVery important news for Daikaya obsessives. The ramen joint will launch a new flavor on Saturday: spicy miso. And the first 25 people to order it will get it for free. [Facebook]

FOOD MEDIA— The Washingtonian has a fun new column called "The Best Thing I Ate This Week," and it's pretty much exactly what it sounds like. The food staff shares culinary highlights from their adventures, including manti from Rus Uz, ice cream sandwiches from Baked & Wired and more. [Washingtonian]
