philly chowhounder here.
the last i had heard, about 2 years ago, the washington food scene wasn't that much of a culinary landscape. there were places for the politicos and staffers in town, but mostly steakhouses and a few american-continental places.
this is all info from someone else, as i haven't been to washington since i was a kid.
recently, my friend, in washington curently for a few days, has told me that the food scene is burgeoning, especially the asian restaurants.
i was just wondering what locals thought of the food scene (general, asian & chinese) and how it compares to others around the nation, and how much of it has been in the past 2 years or so.
comments, grandiose evaluations, updates all appreciated. thank you all.
