List of Restaurant Openings - 2015


Recommended Posts

I'd like readers here to note one thing: cheezepowder has been maintaining the DC area's definitive list of openings for two solid years now while fully accrediting and linking to all publications from where she gets the information.

cheezepowder has raised the standard for reporting on area restaurant openings, and is one of the singularly great assets to the Washington, DC area dining public. I'd like to take a moment to publicly express my gratitude for a professional, classy endeavor that is unmatched by all other publications combined (be they blogs, marketers posing as blogs, or professional publications).

I have repeatedly asked cheezepowder to allow me to name her so she can step forward and take a bow, but she wishes to stay in the background, laboring for the good of others while receiving nothing in return.

Vintage :)
