Have you overdosed on turkey and gravy yet? Well, Robert Wiedmaier‘s just-opened Bethesda restaurant Wildwood Kitchen uses no cream or butter. (And last we checked, it had no turkey on the menu.) The Mediterranean-inspired spot instead focuses on fish, veggies, proteins, and infused olive oils. Look for dishes like Portuguese sardines, semolina pasta with clams, chantrelles, and broccoli rabe pesto, and scallops with eggplant jam, preserved tomatoes, and artichokes. Read more here. Wildwood Kitchen, 10223 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda. (301) 571-1700. wildwoodkitchenRW.com. (Jessica Sidman)
