This week’s Food section kicks off a new monthly column helmed by Tim Carman: The Immigrant’s Table. Each installment will explore an international cuisine found in local strip malls, far from the expense-account dining scene of downtown Washington. For his first column, Carman is focusing on the fish-centric cooking of Bangladesh.
Inside the section, Tom Sietsema takes a first bite of District Commons, Jeff Tunks’ new Washington Circle American tavern, and finds a great burger and a better beer list.
In Good to Go, Rina Rapuano heads to Frederick to check out Juliet’s Italian Market and Cafe.
Dave McIntyre discusses the Washington-based Center for Wine Origins, which enforces truth on wine labels.
And David Fromson examines how one Indiana brewery pushed beer extremes to gain cult popularity as a micro brewery.
