Please forgive the pun. Spring is such a beautiful time to visit D.C., and it’s practically synonymous (in my mind) with cherry blossoms. After I got back from a decidedly chillier version of spring in Scandinavia, I came across these beautiful pictures of D.C. cherry blossoms and just couldn’t resist sharing them or being a little cheesy about it!
It’s been an awfully long time since I lived in DC, and I was considerably poorer then than I am now. Living there as a law student from 2001 to 2004 meant more cheap meals and dive bars than fine dining. So when I was asked for some restaurant recommendations recently by a foodie friend, I needed some help to revitalize my somewhat stale recommendations.
I threw the question out to my Facebook friends and got some great suggestions. As you can see below, my brillant friend Kathy suggested that I submit a question to Tom Sietsema, the food critic at the Washington Post. He hosts a highly followed Q&A session called Ask Tom, where he answers readers questions about restaurants in DC, other cities in the US, and even occasionally abroad.
Washington Post Food Critic Answers My Question
I didn’t really expect much from this process since he must receive a lot of questions, but as you can see he answered my question. And, it looks like a great answer after reading about each of the spots he suggested.
Now all I’m missing is a trip to D.C.! If you beat me to it and get there first, let me know how they are.
P.S. I have more from Scandinavia coming soon. As promised previously, I’ll share what I waited 16 years to taste again Copenhagen! Stay tuned.
