Tom Sietsema’s Fall Dining Guide: Four restaurants that missed the list

Logan Circle’s Pearl Dive almost made the cut. (By Matt McClain for The Washington Post)
The results of my 13th annual Fall Dining Guide are out, and as in years past, many were called but few were chosen: Forty restaurants made the cut to be on my list of favorite places to eat around Washington.

Other candidates piqued my interest but weren’t as convincing as some of their peers — the restaurants I ultimately served up. Follow the links for a taste from some of the many auditions:
