A Taste of D.C.
Come along on this three-hour nibble-and-nosh fest to DC phenomena that celebrates the locally grown and locally invented. We’ll stay on the move, serving up some of our favorite tales of gastronomic history along the way -- from the inaugural party turned food fight to Mrs. Terrell’s quiet milestone in civil rights. Our territory first covers the heart of downtown, where nary a suit in the lunch-hour crowd realizes he’s swarming in Washington’s former market neighborhood. These days think bubble tea, ginger scones and coffee roasted only a stone’s throw away. Bring along a subway fare card, as we’ll next be hopping the Metro to catch two of DC’s most famous drop-in eateries. We’ll introduce you to an edible creation known as a half-smoke then see where D.C.'s Ethiopian community has established its own dining zone.
