Wow, Cap. Lounge scores big this one. From a press release:

Washington, DC- The Capitol Lounge, one of Capitol Hill’s most storied restaurants, is raising the bar to a new level this summer. Finalist of Food Network’s The Next Food Network Star and co-owner/executive chef of Granville Moore’s, Teddy Folkman has entered the fray on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Chef Folkman, debuting on Food Network’s The Next Food Network Star on June 7th, will unveil a menu that touches both on his celebrated dishes at Granville Moore’s and Capitol Lounge’s classic pub fare. Dedicated to enhancing the Capitol Lounge dining experience, Chef Folkman brings his own signature style and pedigree to a block that already boasts the likes of Food Network’s own Spike Mendelsohn of Good Stuff Eatery and Barton Seaver of Sonoma. He formally assumes the role of Executive Chef on June 8th, 2009 with a new menu launching that week.
