Today in Food: Going Rogue

Today’s Food section is led by a report from Tim Carman on the growing number of area chefs abandoning a la carte selection in favor of tasting menus. This includes R.J. Cooper, who won a James Beard award for his work at Vidalia. He’s opening the doors today at his ambitious new restaurant, Rogue 24.

Tom Sietsema takes an early look at 901 Restaurant and Bar, a new Chinatown restaurant that exudes glitz, but tastes glum.

Timothy Smith tries the baguette sandwiches at the Ficelle Food Truck.

Local choreographer Daniel Phoenix Singh is profiled by Bonnie Benwick, as he puts on a dinner for 75.

In Smoke Signals, Jim Shahin stops by the home of D.C. chef and cookbook author Barton Seaver (who has cooked locally in kitchens as varied as Jaleo, St.-Ex, Bar Pilar and the temporarily closed Hook) for a lesson on grilling fish.

Dave McIntyre dispells the myth of crummy Greek wine.

And Greg Kitsock looks at the Birreria brew pub, an operation located on the roof of Eataly, Manhattan’s glitzy Italian food emporium, which may be in D.C. by the end of 2012.
