PG County power play

Food trucks will be able to operate in DC-adjacent Prince George's County for the first time in a decade, reports Washington Business Journal. That said, they'll be relegated to areas near Metro stations and will be subject to strict regulations and inspections to keep everything humming. [WBJ]

701 Upgrade

The Washington Post has the lowdown on another side of 701's interior revamping — which included a redone interior — a new menu. The wall is now adorned with a series of cracked "eggs" with golden interiors, purchased from the Phillips Collection; the menu now includes a meat-free shawarma made with cauliflower and hummus.

I'll take you to the sandwich shop

Washington City Paper's Young & Hungry tries out a sandwich at Been 'n Bread. B'nB recently opened in the troubled spot in Chinatown/Penn Quarter — 6th St. NW and H St. NW. The sandwich in question was heavy on the roast beef and named after the shop's new neighborhood. [WCP]

No more La Bar for La Ferme

Bethesda Magazine has information on a planned renovation at French standby La Ferme. La Ferme is swapping out La Bar, a 25-person private dining area, for an actual bar that will seat 15; whereas the private room saw traffic only about twice a week, this open bar will be open everyday. [Bethesda]
