Happy New Year, D.C.!

We’ve spent some time reflecting on the past year, but we’re also eagerly looking ahead to this one—at least when it comes to restaurants. Food Editor Laura Hayes wrote about 10 restaurants opening in 2019 that not only excite her, but come together to tell the story of dining in D.C. She joins host Will Warren to break down her list and talk about what we can expect from D.C.’s food scene this year. Spoiler alert: Small plates aren’t going anywhere.

Warren also brings you news that you might have missed if you unplugged over the break. A judge appointed a receiver for a Brightwood Park apartment building, and we published an issue devoted to fiction of and about D.C. Listen to learn more!
