This week's top dish from Eater DC, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
SUPER BOWL—Don't feel like coming up with fancy appetizers for 30 of your closest friends this weekend? Eater has got you covered with a guide to places to watch the Super Bowl — they all have cold beer, big TVs and, most importantly, good food.
FOOD TRUCKS—Y'all, a José Andrés food truck is on its way. This week, the Spanish chef shared some details about the truck with Eater. He also talks food truck regulations, his admiration for small businesses and Rush Limbaugh in an interview in which he declares: "Rush Limbaugh: José wants to feed you."
CHINATOWN—The big news in drinking this week was that much-loved mixologist Gina Chersevani has parted ways with PS 7's as she works toward opening her own place. Word was that the split was not on the greatest of terms, and Eater talked to PS 7's chef/owner Peter Smith about the whole thing.
SEXYTIME—Eater launched its annual Hottest Chefs Contest this week in which they'll determine the hottest chef in DC, who will then go on to compete against the hottest chefs in all of Eater's sister cities to crown an ultimate Hottest Chef. They're in the middle of first round voting now, so go support some hometown hotties.
GEORGETOWN—Opening earlier this week in Georgetown was Unum, a restaurant that replaces the former Mendocino Grille. Eater takes a look inside and at the bar and dinner menus for the new restaurant.
FALLS CHURCH—After briefly closing for renovations, Falls Church restaurant 2941 reopened to the public this week with a more casual format and menu — with an aim of becoming more accessible to your average diner than it once was. Eater takes a look at the changes and the new menu.
GEORGETOWN—The folks behind Good Stuff Eatery have long said that Georgetown is on their radar for a third location and now it seems they're inching ever closer to deal — but they won't name where. Fortunately, there's plenty to speculate about.
FOOD TRUCKS—The DC Food Trucks Association announced this week that it was throwing support behind Mayor Vince Gray's new set of proposed food truck regulations, though with a few caveats.
