New, 1 comment

AWARDS SEASONThe Washington Post publishes its third list of 40 Dishes that Every Washingtonian Must Try. This year's edition is largely items from new restaurants, like vegan ramen at Daikaya and the salmon BLT from Neopol Smokery at Union Market. But there are also some classics, like Old Ebbitt Grill's oysters. Take a look; some great dishes here. [WaPo]
