In the nation's capital, a meal is never just a meal. More likely, it's a power lunch, wheeling and dealing over drinks, or negotiations over dinner. Explore the city's burgeoning restaurant scene here at Menuism, as well as the outlying areas of Virginia and Maryland.

Why choose one restaurant for dinner when you could choose dozens? There’s a food hall and farmer’s market renaissance happening around the country, and if you visit any of these locations, you’ll want to make sure you start with an empty stomach.

Imagine you’re a Chinese tourist making your first visit to Washington D.C. You want to check out the Chinatown in America’s national capital, since it is quite close to the attractions on the National Mall. So you head over to the main drag of Chinatown, 7th St. N.W., and, looking for a nice place to dine, you spot Chinese characters that say “Owl Restaurant.” Of course, because the American name of the restaurant doesn’t mean anything to you, you’re quite surprised when you find you’ve walked into Hooters.

If it’s not broke, most of us have learned not to fix it. But that’s not how James Beard Award winner RJ Cooper of Rogue24 and Shannon Ambrosio of the Come N Get It BBQ truck see classic foods.

In the first episode of the new web series Chefs of Anarchy, Cooper, Ambrosio, and Joy Wilson set out to recreate the iconic pork dumpling, served by the thousands at Dumpling Man in New York City. Their solution? Braise the pig’s head — tongue, cheek meat, and ears for added crunch — and pair with a perfectly immersion circulator-cooked egg yolk so it explodes at first bite.
