It was a week in which newcomers — the theme of this year’s Best of D.C. issue — also dominated the Y&H blog. The Queen’s upcoming appearance on H Street NE (The Queen Vic, that is) drew most of the attention, as is proper, but the reigning royalty of sandwich-making, Taylor Gourmet, was not far behind, with news of its third location in Bethesda.

Take a look at your favorites from last week:

  1. The Queen Vic to Make an Appearance on H Street with Eel Pies (*)
  2. Taylor Gourmet to Open Third Shop in Bethesda
  3. My Day in Chinatown/Penn Quarter Food and Drink
  4. Crepes: Are They the New Cupcakes?
  5. The Truly Awful Thing About the Cupcake Craze: The Wasteful Packaging

* A certain light-drinking Budweiser beer was, once again, a popular item among readers, but we’ve stopped counting it.
