Coming attractions

Grocery giant Wegmans has sprinkled stores all across Virginia. But its Chantilly location (14361 Newbrook Drive), scheduled to open Sunday, June 3, has something extra: a built-in gourmet burger stand. The Burger Bar at the Columbia, Maryland outpost features nine specialty burgers (all ½ pound servings) on its menu including a bacon cheeseburger, lamb burger, falafel burger, and black bean burger, as well as sandwiches, salads, and frozen custard. Stay tuned for additional details about the opening menu in Chantilly.

Awards season

Himitsu co-founder Kevin Tien is one of the best new chefs in America, according to Food & Wine magazine. Tien joins 10 other hospitality professionals featured in the July issue; the 11 honorees are scheduled to appear at an annual event in Aspen, Colorado this June.

Eat local
