Eater DC, Featuring New DC Editor Warren Rojas and Associate Editor Tierny Plumb

7 posts in this topic

I just wanted to say thank you to Eater for picking up on some dr.com posts in Amy's thorough compilation of internet reviews for Green Pig Bistro. It's very rewarding to see our members having a direct impact on the dining world. The impact is always there - I know that, and restaurants know that - but it's nice for the members here to actually be able to see it because sometimes it can seem like a very intangible force.

Still my source for dining dirt, although sometimes we take ourselves a little too much..

Thanks Don! And to your members for their great feedback.

Today, Eater published a list of highlights from message boards with a couple from ours.

I tried to add this there as a comment, but it doesn't work - I don't feel quite right making this a topic on their forum, so I'm not sure what else to do other than post it here.

As a (David Foster Wallace-sized) supplement to their list, here are a few more highlights from the past several days:

* James Beard Award-winning chef RJ Cooper shares his Honey-Orange Glazed Carrots recipe for Thanksgiving.

* Good Fortune, the largest international supermarket in Northern Virginia at 44,000 square feet, opened on Saturday.
 
* The manager of Sushi Capitol announced that they are opening Ogawa, in Kalorama.
 
* The Mezzanine Cafe at the National Museum of Women in the Arts is partnering with Union Kitchen, Dirty South Deli, and Blind Dog Cafe.
 
* Breaking news that Eventide was closing, and that the space will be operated by the owners of A-Town.
 
* Eventide announced that their wine cellar is up for sale.
 
* Brad Walker, chef-owner of Boundary Road, announced that they're searching for a GM.
 
* A compendium of restaurants in the DC area offering half-priced wine nights (this one is for active members only).
 
* Song Long replaces Song Que (the deli owned by Four Sisters) in Eden Center.
 
* The notorious chief of police in the most famous photo from the Vietnam war used to own a pizza parlor in Burke.
 
* The opening of two new Falls Church restaurants, Saffron and (soon) Cafe Kindred.
 
* An updated list of 2013 and 2014 DC-area restaurant openings (257 and 229, respectively).

I wanted to say congratulations to Eater for having hired Warren Rojas as their new DC Editor.

I've broken bread with Warren, and admire his skill as a journalist and his passion for dining - I'd be very surprised if "DC Editor" is his final stop, so I'll look forward to monitoring his career. In the meantime, I'm just happy that he's back in the culinary world.

Congratulations to both Eater and Warren.
