For the past two years, The Washington Post’s Weekend section has curated a list of the best 40 dishes in D.C. I have been a big fan of the list when it comes out every year, since I love trying new dishes and exploring the food scene in Washington. Along with reporter Lavanya Ramanathan and some help from Randy Smith, we selected five of the 40 eats for short 40 second profiles. We talked to the chefs about the dish, saw how they were prepared and tried to capture the personalities of each restaurant in the videos.
Above is one of the five dishes, Rose’s Luxury’s pork and litchi salad, but you can watch the videos for Chocolate Crust’s doissant, Woodlands Vegan Bistro’s macaroni & cheese, Daikaya’s vegetable ramen and Water & Wall’s duck confit here.
Yum yum yum now we want lunch. THANKS, JAYNE.

The Welcome to Night Vale live show was pretty damn amazing. I laughed. I sat in stunned silence. I thought a lot. I lived to tell the tale, even though I brought a librarian with me to the very show warning me against the beasts.

I can’t believe I missed this in DC, but I’m hoping to see the NPG embrace more AR or interactive works.
