Two big names in D.C. food writing took home James Beard Awards last night for their work.

The Washington Post's food critic Tom Sietsema won the Dining and Travel award for his "America's Best Food Cities" series. Meanwhile, outgoing Washingtonian critic Todd Kliman was awarded the MFK Fisher Distinguished Writing Award for his essay, "Pork Life," published in Lucky Peach.
