New owners mean new crabcakes

Twisted Vines has new ownership and that means some menu changes. They're switching up the small plates and adding flatbreads. [ARLNOW]

Forget the McNuggets

No word yet on what exactly will be served at the upcoming State Dinner for China (last time it was steak and potatoes). But despite Donald Trump's declaration he'd serve McDonald's in the President's shoes, it should be just a bit fancier than that. [RS]

Veggie Revolution

Beefsteak is expanding its footprint beyond Washington. The José Andrés is primed to open a location in Philadelphia. [TDP]

Show your burrito prowess

Among the several celebratory activities planned for Guajillo's 15th anniversary: a burrito-eating contest. On Saturday at 4 p.m., gluttons will try to beat the record set during the Cachudo Challenge (right now, it stands at 20 minutes to finish a 7 pound burrito).

Hooked on truffles works for them

Young diners can educate their palates at Restaurant Eve, thanks to their back-to-school promotion. That means kids 12 and under eat for free (they must stick to the regular menu) in the Tasting Room or Bistro on weekdays through Oct. 9. [FB]
