This article is so incoherent in its criticism that it doesn't warrant a coherent response...but I'll waste 2 minutes on one anyway. Let's start here: Just to make it tough, I'll stick to an area 1 square mile from my house in NE DC. Charcuterie: Red Apron Coffee: Peregrine, Sidamo, Vigilante (hopefully coming soon) Bread: Lyon Bakery, Batter Bowl Bakery, Frenchies Cheese: Righteous Cheese, Cowgirl Creamery (1.9 miles from my house...the horror!!!) Ice Cream: Pitango Gelato, Dolcezza, Trickling Springs Creamery Produce: Almaala Farms, Eastern Shore Organic, H St. Farmer's Market, Join a freaking CSA As for a discernible tradition, I would offer that DC's seems to be journalists who ignorantly rant about the food scene of a city they clearly have no current knowledge of. Again, let's stick to NE/SE DC: Inexpensive: A Litteri, Mangialardo and Sons, Shawafel, Chupacabra, Neopol Smokery, Buffalo and Bergen, Red Apron, Taylor Gourmet, Taylor Charles Steak and Ice, Taste of Jamaica, Jam Duong Style, Little Ricky's, H & Pizza, Tortilla Cafe, Market Lunch Neighborhood: Red Hen, Boundary Road, Le Grenier, Hanks on the Hill, Beuchert's Saloon, Belga Cafe, Granville Moore's, Menomale, Toki Underground, Tash, Montmartre, Ethiopic Special Occasion: Atlas Room (could also fit in neighborhood). Head over the the dreaded NW, and you get The Source, Fiola, Corduroy, etc. Look, I moved here after living in the East Village of NYC for almost 10 years. I love the food scene in that city, and in that neighborhood in particular. DC is not NY, and I would hate it if it tried to be. DC is DC, and the food scene here is something to be proud of.
