Ch-Ch-Changes

The Hill Is Home digs into the myriad updates, including a change in ownership, that have given grab-and-go barbecue spot Kenny’s a fresh perspective. The decor is “cool and cozy,” the food has vastly improved (“meats and the sides have been executed well and consistently”), and there’s still more to come. [THIH]

Do the math

Washington City Paper recruited two local chefs to cost out the price of producing Milk Bar’s buttery crack pie (currently $46 a pop). The participating pastry chefs arrive at different conclusions, but the investigation suggests that Milk Bar is likely raking in the dough on the high profile dessert. [WCP]

Coming Attractions

Local blogger Robert Dyer reports that Midwest-born Nada plans to open its first East Coast location in Bethesda next year. The trendy Mexican-style eatery — think: poutine featuring fried potatoes, barbecue beef, and cheese; tuna poke and guacamole; fried avocado tacos — is projected to install a 6,200-square-foot restaurant in the Pike & Rose complex.
