Peet’s Place

Eater takes a look at how third wave coffee culture is rubbing off on the chain Peet’s Coffee & Tea. The chain opened a “slow bar” at its new Georgetown location — replete with pour-over and siphon brewing methods. Being the first of its kind, it’s a test site, but plans for expansion are pretty ambitious. [E]

Year-End Reflection

The Shaw Bijou is overhyped, and Chao Ku didn’t receive enough of the stuff — just some year-end reflections from Washington City Paper. Editor Laura Hayes talks about the year that was in eating in D.C., from worst restaurant flubs — being offered cash from a PR rep to retract a story — to the best dishes she ate this year. [WCP]

Gingerbread Wonder

These aren’t the gingerbread houses from your childhood — these are cookie-and-confectionary masterpieces. NPR has the scoop on some insanely beautiful gingerbread creations — gothic mansions with gravity-defying features, among many others. [NPR]

Bitches Brunch

D.C.’s Bitches Who Brunch have a good idea for eating your way through D.C.’s Michelin-recognized restaurants: go for brunch! They hit up standbys like Doi Moi, Jaleo, Zaytina, and give word on whether or not said brunches are actually worth a visit. [BWB]
