It's time to note the hottest restaurants in D.C. for October. Four additions this time around: HalfSmoke, Little Coco's, Bullfrog Bagels (the new one on Capitol Hill), and Smoked & Stacked.

3. José Andrés a Big Winner on D.C.'s First Michelin ‘Bib Gourmand’ List

Michelin's first group of "bib gourmand" restaurants (essentially their version of cheap eats) has been revealed. There were 19 restaurants that made the cut in D.C.'s first year. Many are international restaurants serving cuisines like Lao, Ethiopian, and Spanish. Restaurateur José Andrés snagged four different nods, too.

Oyamel was among the Bib Gourmand winners.
