Here’s Your 2020 Michelin Dining Map to DC

“Michelin just released its fourth dining guide to DC. Ten new Bib Gourmandrestaurants were added to the 2020 guide (moderately priced eateries where you can get a meal for $40 or less), and four new one-star entries: omakase splurge Sushi Nakazawa, fiery Maydan, modern American tasting room Gravitas, and Little Pearl, restaurateur Aaron Silverman’s cafe-by-day, modest prix-fixe by night. Here’s a map to your next Michelin meal.”

Our Food Editor’s Top Picks for DC Summer Restaurant Week

“Dinner at chef Matt Baker’s Ivy City tasting room typically starts at $90 for five courses, so the $35 Restaurant Week option looks like a great deal. Guests can typically build their own tasting by mixing and matching dishes with plenty of vegetarian items alongside meats/seafood. Plus the restaurant just debuted a lovely rooftop garden and bar (hello, date night). Dinner only.”
