Happy National Grilled Cheese Month! (As if you didn’t need another reason to love April.) Celebrate the occasion with our legendary Grilled Cheese sandwich, made with gruyere, white cheddar, and muenster cheeses on fresh, house-made bread and served with classic Roasted Tomato Soup. Enjoy the classic — or jazz it up with a slice of spice-brined ham. The Washington Post calls it “an ode to abundance,” while Washingtonian dubs it “a cheesy trifecta.” Why not stop by and taste it for yourself?
The December issue of Washingtonian highlights the 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards. Founding Farmers is a favorite American restaurant among Washingtonian readers this year. We are proud to see true food and drink, produced and inspired by American Family Farmers is still a winner in The District. Congratulations to the other 2010 Readers’ Choice restaurants and good eats to all!
More than 1,000 Washingtonians piled into the National Building Museum on July 21 to sample and sip some of DC’s best food and drink at Washingtonian Magazine’s annual Best of Washington party. The evening benefited the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and featured signature dishes and libations from more than 60 Washingtonian Best of Winners for 2010. Chef Al Nappo served bacon lollis and chili-lime popcorn to eager attendees who enthusiastically returned for seconds and thirds. This year’s event theme, “The Greatest Show on Earth” certainly had some of the best food in town.
