6th and H Street, NW
Thanks to Tommy for sending word. Beef n Bread opened back in September 2015 (anyone remember the old video store?). Hopefully The Washington Post’s Tim Carman is doing OK.

Yang has truly been a labor of love but I’m ready to spend more time with friends and family and remember what everyone looks like. (more…)

Fuyu courtesy Whaley’s
“In December Whaley’s will undergo a seasonal transformation and become FUYU for the winter months, offering Chef Daniel Perron’s take on shabu shabu.
Shabu Shabu is literally a centerpiece of Japanese cuisine. Each table will feature a hot-pot of simmering broth – house-crafted dashi or red miso – so diners can create their own meal family-style.
