San Diego Chowhound needs help. This coming Saturday we are going to be driving in the late afternoon from Richmond to Washington DC. Are there any special (really good, or unique or???) places along or near that route for dinner? Thanks in advance.
In the latest episode of Roots, Jason Stratton tells how he went from studying avant-garde poetry in Spain to becoming the award-winning chef of Seattle's Spinasse, Artusi, and Aragona. Roots takes a deep biographical look into the world's most influential chefs to reveal their inspirations, Ancestry.com style except not really. **UPDATE: Stratton recently announced his departure from his killer restaurants, citing a need for a sabbatical out in the great wide world. Dude is gonna read some books and nod thoughtfully at art like whoa.
